Making the Grade: What Benefits Students?
Guskey, Thomas R.
Educational Leadership, v52 n2 p14-20 Oct 1994
Researchers agree that grading and reporting are not essential to instruction; there is no best grading system; grading is inherently subjective; and grades have some value as rewards, but none as punishments. Types of learning criteria and practical grading guidelines are outlined, along with a brief history of grading practices since the late 1880s. (45 references) (MLH)
