Overall criteria are standards used to assess performance. In addition to grades, what are some criteria that could be used to assess the performance of college students? What might be some examples of criterion deficiency (i.e., what are some aspects of student performance that are not well assessed using these types of measures)? What might be some examples of criterion contamination (i.e., what are some aspects students might be judged on that are not relevant to student performance)?
