The Keepers of Numbers: Teachers' Perspectives on Grades.
Blount, H. Parker
Educational Forum, v61 n4 p329-34 Sum 1997
Grades are value judgments. They are not essential for learning, and they are motivating only as an exchange medium in a system that requires them. They are not a necessary method of assessment or measurement. Grading engenders conflicts between objectivity and the humanity of teaching. (SK)
