An Old Chestnut Revisited: Teachers' Opinions and Attitudes toward Grading within a Competency Based Training Framework
Richards, James
International Journal of Training Research, v12 n3 p182-191 2014
The purpose of this study was to explore teachers' opinions with regard to the value and process of grading within a competency based training (CBT) framework, following the introduction of a formalised grading system at a specialist Technical and Further Education centre for hospitality and tourism training The data were gathered using a 16-item Likert-style instrument that allowed for comments. Basic descriptive statistics were used for the analysis. The results indicated that for this sample, teachers were evenly divided as to their perceived value of grading and the processes by which grading should be done. Even though teachers had undergone some training in the writing of rubrics, uncertainty and doubt still existed with regard to grading within a CBT framework.
