Rigorous Grading Does Not Raise Standards: It Only Lowers Grades.
Agnew, Eleanor
Assessing Writing, v2 n1 p91-103 1995
Discusses "grade inflation," and the pressure on instructors to "play grade roll politics to save their own professional hides." Argues that the grade deflation movement works at cross purposes with its goal of elevating academic standards, and that it is at odds with composition theory and its process pedagogy. Suggests portfolio assessment as one solution. (PA)
