    However, there are also pros and cons of a number grading system. A positive is, it’s easier for the teacher to record borderline grades like an “A+/B-” with a decimal instead. On the other hand, with a four-point system, students might start obsessing over getting a “4” just like did with getting an “A+”. If that happened there wouldn’t be much of a point of switching over to the number system, essentially solving no problems.…

Any AC awarded less than the minimum produces an automatic referral for the submission (regardless of the overall mark achieved).…

    Grading Scale

    Anyone who has attended a high school or college will readily say that one of the most stressful aspects of the entire experience is grades. Students will loose hours of sleep per night poring over textbooks, clutching a pen in one hand and a mug of Starbucks coffee in the other. They soon foster an obsession with achieving and maintaining perfect grades to the point where anything that earns less than "A" is a disgusting failure. The lengths students go to in hopes of attaining good grades is maximal, often including the exchange of cash or sexual favors with their superiors for changed grades! It had been postulated that instructors are more likely to raise the grade of an attractive, tearful student than with the same plea whose looks might not be up to the same standard as their peers (Perlmutter, 2004). But why is there an unhealthy fixation on these letters and point values? Why is the siren 's call of the almighty "A" so strong that anything less is a monstrous travesty? On the other end of the spectrum, why is a "D" considered a passing grade when "C" is looked upon as just ok or "average?"…

    Percents, points letters, averages. What do all of these have in common? They all are different factors that deal with grading high school students. The school board in Fort Wayne Community School system introduced a new grading policy for all the high schools in the district. They got rid of a traditional zero to 100 scale. This 2012-2013 school year we operate on a twelve point system. I believe that the new grading scale is causing more problems for students instead of helping them.…

    Teachers have always used grades to measure the amount a student has learned. This practice is becoming ineffective. Many students have a wide range of grades, which show that grades may not show what a student really knows. Therefore, the standard grading system should be replaced. Some reasons why grades should be replaced are bad grades can hinder a child 's performance, grades define who a student is in the classroom, and grades are not an effective way to see if students have learned the material. The current grading system should be upgraded and every school should incorporate the plus/minus system in their method of grading.…

    Abolishing Grading System

    • 529 Words
    • 3 Pages

    In “A Proposal To Abolish Grading” by Paul Goodman, the author informs the readers about the ideas of nullifying the policy of grading and judging students solely by exams. The writer believes that grading depreciates teaching and creates a bad spirit, leading to cheating and/or plagiarizing. Although majority of the professors agree, some people also question the idea. “How else will the graduate schools, the foundations, the corporations know whom to accept, reward, hire? How will the talent scouts know who to tap?” (line 8-10)Again, Goodman answers, “by testing the applicants, of course.” Dean Whitla easily counters this by proposing Harvard University’s very own, unique admission system. “The objection is ludicrous,” Goodman says. Although the author’s claim is potent, there are elements of th issue to agree and disagree about.…

    Grades have long been used in most schools to indicate the degree to which students grasp subject matter and to document overall classroom performance. By most accounts, students with diverse learning needs and/or disabilities are at a significant disadvantage in school. Despite the fact that some students have IEP objectives and goals, some teachers, inclusion/general education teachers, sometimes forget that these students are working/processing information at a much slower rate than other student; therefore, forgetting to incorporate alternative grading options for students with diverse learning need or disabilities. Most often student grades generally stem from test performance; however, not all students are good test takers and without meaningful accommodations in curriculum and instruction and in testing and grading practices, many of these students will become further alienated; therefore, teachers need to develop alternative methods to the traditional grading system.…

    I feel that in my years of interrelating with my students I have made a profound difference in their lives. I make this proclamation because I have always believed in the power of critical thinking. Too many educators approach teaching with only a standard curriculum and never ask their students to "color outside the lines." By the time the kids get to college, they are robots who sit in a classroom and expect their instructors to feed them information which they will memorize, short term, and forget right after the exam. I assist them to become creative again after they have been told to be receptive only for their entire school experience. I challenge them to interact with each other and express their viewpoints. I teach oral communication so it's the perfect realm for their self actualization.…
