The Meaning of College Grades in Three Grading Systems.
Eiszler, Charles F.
Educational Research Quarterly, v8 n3 p12-19 1983
To determine if college students (n=345) attribute different meanings to specific grades (depending on the nature of the grading system used), three grading systems were compared: competitive, mastery, and growth. In addition, students were asked to rate the meaning of a specific grade ("A,""B," or "C") in the context of one of the three grading systems. (PN)
