Summary

A questionnaire on the pass-fail grading system was sent to the 276 deans whose institutions belong to the Council of Graduate Schools in the United States. Of the 230 deans who responded, 214 preferred to evaluate a student for admission to graduate or professional study on the basis of a letter graded transcript, 7 preferred a pass-fail transcript. To a question asking whether they would tend to accept for admission to graduate or professional study a student with good recommendations and who had received a "pass" for every course he had completed under a pass-fail system, 121 answered yes and 69 answered no. To the question asking whether, in the above situation they would require additional evaluation to reach a decision, 202 answered yes and 11 no. One of the basic reasons given for the overwhelming preference for the letter graded transcript was that it allowed greater ease and accuracy in evaluating the student. (AF)
