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.
