An Unintended Impact of One Grading Practice.
Wood, Leslie A.
Urban Education, v29 n2 p188-201 Jul 1994
Examining the grades for an entire urban high school in a Midwestern city shows that the distribution of grades among students remains constant at all grade levels, even though many students drop out. The result is a depression of grades and an increase in student dissatisfaction among those who receive the lowest grades. (SLD)
