Are you frustrated by students' reactions to grades?  Do you think that your grading practices are motivating students to improve or encouraging them to give up?  Let's look at some of the myths of grading and find out what the research is saying about the purpose of grading.  Then you can decide which grading practices are best for you and your students.
