When the Tail Wags the Dog: Perceptions of Learning and Grade Orientation in, and by, Contemporary College Students and Faculty.
Pollio, Howard R.; Beck, Hall P.
Journal of Higher Education, v71 n1 p84 102 Jan-Feb 2000
Three investigations assessed how concurrent emphases on the intrinsic value of learning and the importance of grades affect college student and instructor views of themselves and of one another. Results suggest that students and instructors have compatible learning and grade orientation ideals, but that current grading practices adversely affect student-instructor relations and tend to value grades over learning itself.
