This myth is perpetuated because students sense the arbitrary nature of the grade: "Grading cri­ teria may be regarded as ... mysterious, a function of teacher taste rather than a representation of inherent and tangible standards" (Jongsma 318). When students do not understand the criteria for grades and comments, they must make up the meaning, decide that the teacher had a good reason, or assume that they just won't ever understand.

If a student feels a piece he or she has written is wonderful, yet it receives a poor grade, the student will cease to trust the teacher's opinion as a reader.
