(Reeves, D.(2008) Leading to change/effective grading practices. Educational Leadership.)
Practices vary greatly among teachers in the same school.
“ Giving a zero on a 100 point scale for missing work is a mathematical inaccuracy.” (Reeves, 2004)
“Threats of failure do not work for students”
(Reeves, 2204, p. 325).
Just 2-3 zeros can cause failure for a semester.
2-3 failures can cause a student to drop out of school ( Reeves, 2004).
