BIAS IN GRADING OF AN IS-SUBJECT

Research output: Contribution to book/anthology/report/proceedingArticle in proceedingsResearchpeer-review

It is generally assumed that grading of an exam has direct relation to the competence of the stu-dent. That means that a grading is a reliable and valid measurement of what the student has learned in the subject, in other words: To what degree has the student reached the learning goals? However, is it always true that a grading is a reliable and valid measurement? Based on a statistical analysis of oral exams of +700 second-year bachelor students in the science subject ‘Business Development with In- formation Systems’ – a IS introductory course with a rather tra-ditional curriculum – we claim that the grades can be explained by group size, examiner, placement of the exam, etc., in addition to the competence of the students.
