Validity of Faculty Judgments of Student Performance: Relationship between Grades and Credits Earned and External Criterion Measures.
Smith, Dwight L.
Journal of Higher Education, v63 n3 p329-40 May-Jun 1992
A study analyzed validity and reliability of grades and credits earned by college students in five departments, as indicators of student learning. Results indicate positive, strong correlation between faculty-assigned grades and student performance on external criterion measures. Validity of credits was not as clear. Strong and consistent evidence regarding stability of student performance was found. (Author/MSE)
