The Point System of Grading: A Critical Appraisal.
Madgic, Robert F.
NASSP Bulletin, v72 n507 p29-34 Apr 1988
Assigning points to denote student achievement levels and converting point totals to semester grades is a common practice. This article reviews the advantages of point systems and discusses certain problems, including misplaced emphasis on learning objectives and reduction of teacher judgment and responsibility. Teachers should downplay the numerical accounting procedures determining grades. (MLH)
