Grading Practices in the United States, and Suggestions for Determining U.S. Grade Equivalents for Grading Systems Used in Other Countries
by James S. Frey, 2003
In order to determine the U.S. equivalent of an international grade, an understanding of how grades are used to represent the quality of academic work is necessary. This monograph provides a concise, easy-to-read explanation of this, as well as illustrating different types of grading systems used throughout the world. This is a particularly valuable publication for both our international colleagues and students preparing to begin studies in the United States.
