|I have been doing a little research on grading practices. See my AERA paper, Transforming Supervisory Grading" at|
I draw on recent work by Marzano on this topic, but also dug as far back as I could. My initial finding is that academic grading discourses and practices are intertwined with those of market capitalism, both flowering in the 1840s.
The ungraded schools that have existed, mostly in the private sector, have either been disbanded or have abandoned the practice (e.g., Dewey's Lab School at the University of Chicago, or Hutchins model of undergraduate education at UofC).
I'd like to correspond more about this topic.
