Analytic versus Holistic Grading

timer Asked: Mar 19th, 2015

Question description

As the Decision Time story on page 186 of our textbook illustrates, there is quite the debate about whether to use analytic or holistic grading for constructed-response assessments (such as essay questions).

Please review the Decision Time story as well as the information on analytic versus holistic grading on pages 191-194 in the textbook.

Next, please answer the following questions:

  • If you were tasked with grading a set of essay tests, which approach would you use if you could only choose one: analytic or holistic? On what basis did you make your choice?
  • Do you think that teachers should be required to use both approaches for the same set of test papers? Why or why not?Text: Classroom Assessment 7th Edition

This is a discussion question, must be 75 to 150 words, but may go longer depending on the topic. Please cite any outside sources used.
