Grades and Teacher Characteristics.
Boozer, Bernard
A study was conducted over four semesters, spring 1976 through fall 1977, at the State University Colleges at Oswego and Cortland, two arts and sciences colleges of the State University of New York. It investigated the relationship of selected demographic variables of college teachers, selected environmental factors, and grades given by faculty members. It was found that grading patterns are idosyncratic of each campus, despite the institutions' similarities. Class size and level were found to have some, though statistically insignificant, relationship to grading practice, while faculty rank, degree, and tenure, sex, age, and discipline have none. It is concluded that the factors in the study cannot in themselves account for grading differences. (MSE)
