The Case against Grades

I remember the first time that a grading rubric was attached to a piece of my writing. . . . Suddenly all the joy was taken away. I was writing for a grade—I was no longer exploring for me. I want to get that back. Will I ever get that back?
— Claire, a student (in Olson, 2006), cited in Kohn, “The Case Against Grades”
