Briggs, Paul; And Others
Assessment & Evaluation in Higher Education, v24 n3 p285-300 Sep 1999
Analysis of percentage grade distributions in 11 subject areas at seven English universities over three years found three types of grade distributions characteristic of specific subject areas: (1) English and History; (2) Biology, Business Studies, Fine Art, French, Law, and Sociology; and (3) Computer Studies and Mathematics. Grade distribution types appeared to reflect confidence of assessors in different disciplines. (DB)
