Implementation and evaluation of letter-based grading system: a pilot
Dr Sebastian Rasinger
A key concern for student achievement is the often de facto capping of marks at around 80-85%, which a clustering of marks in the 70s and little differentiation and often a disregard of grade level descriptors. This session discusses the results of a pilot study in English and Media which introduces the use of a letter-based grading system. A first analysis shows that markers are more likely to award grades at the high end of the scale – 85% or even 95% – and a clear mirroring of the language of grade descriptors in their feedback.
