The Grading System: Does an "A" Really Equal Learning?
Haley, Beverly
NASSP Bulletin, v72 n507 p35-41 Apr 1988
Good grades on a report card do not necessarily mean the material has been comprehended. This article examines the relative worth of grades; extra credit assignments; categorizing students into A, B, or C boxes; and the role of parental pressures for higher grades. Grading systems should be subordinate to true learning motivation. (MLH)
