Using Marks To Assess Student Performance: Some Problems and Alternatives.
Dalziel, James
Assessment & Evaluation in Higher Education, v23 n4 p351-66 Dec 1998
Traditional grading systems use numerals in a manner equivalent to psychological measurement, and encounter many of the problems associated with psychological measurement, particularly in aggregating grades to obtain a single score. Problems are illustrated by a university's grading system for 1,039 students in a first-year psychology course. Alternatives to traditional grading, including student involvement in the process, are considered. (Author/MSE)
