From Zero to Sixty: A Survey of College Writing Teachers' Grading Practices and the Affect of Failed Performance
Babb, Jacob; Corbett, Steven J.
Composition Forum, v34 Sum 2016
Drawing on results from a survey distributed nationally through the WPA and WCenter listservs, we examine the affective aspect of failure in teachers' responses to student writing, aiming to pinpoint teachers' perceptions of why students fail. Overall, we posit that writing studies needs to pay closer attention to teachers' emotional responses to student failure. This article represents a step in that direction.
