The Meaning of Grades based on Faculty and Student Metaphors.
Goulden, Nancy Rost; Griffin, Charles J. G.
Communication Education, v44 n2 p110-25 Apr 1995
Investigates a possible source of grade-related conflict--the different perceptions students and teachers hold on what grades "mean." Finds stark differences between the two groups' perceptions of grades while underscoring the value of metaphor analysis as a tool for elucidating respondents' deeply felt central meanings. (SR)
