Abstract

One of the most contentious issues on the Korean university campus is department policy on grading. Two general principles are at war, proportional grading where students are graded in relationship to their positioning with others and absolute grading where students are measured and graded against a standard. Policy and the goals that grading hopes to achieve are often vague because both principle and application are usually discussed together and the arguments become futile because clarity in application depends on clarity in policy. It is the hope of the author that this case study will clarify student and instructor perceptions of the two grading practices and that educators and others may gain insight on the implications of grading policies.
