Summary

In what is the only controlled experiment on the incentive value of letter grades in the university classroom, students were randomly assigned to 1 of 3 conditions: conventional letter-grading, pass-fail, or nonevaluation. During the semester in which the experiment was conducted, the pass-fail students studied only 50% as much and achieved 89% as many correct answers on hourly examinations as did the conventional group. Nonevaluated students studied only 13% as much and achieved 63% as many correct answers on the hourly examinations as did the conventional group. The examination performances of the nonevaluated group (for whom attendance was required) and of the pass-fail group were relatively quite a bit higher than the study time percentages, a fact largely attributed to overlapping content of text and lectures.
