From: Pat To: Teacher2Teacher Public Discussion Date: 1998071508:56:51 Subject: curving test scores Devil's advocate question: When students, as a whole, score high on a test, do you curve down? For instance, maybe just about everyone scores between an 85 and 100. Do you leave them with these grades, whereas if they had scored only between 60 and 75 you would have curved them? My question is not intented as ridicule, but as thought- provoking.
