I see some success in the future:
This should be done in all schools regardless of country.
Yes, I think it might work out great. But the grades themselves are silly I think:
First we had like:
Where A was the best.
Then it was changed to:
Where 5 was best.
Now you get:
IG - Not approved
G - Approved
VG - Well done
MVG - Very well done
I liked the numbers. To get access to certain education all your grades where added and divided. So for a certain education you might need 4.2 to get in to the program.
How does your grades work?
Most parents/students are very familiar with the A-F scale. It gives the learner and parents the feedback they need to assess where the student is in comparison to the peers in class.
A to F? So you can't have a middle-grade? That should be a spur. 1 - 5 ment 3 was average. (Also whole classes could be forced into a normal distributed curve by teachers who misunderstood the purpose - rendering comparison impossible)
But how do you sum up the grades? Are they converted in to points?
variations of pluses or minuses.
My high school had a 0-6 grade scale with 0-2 being fail, 3 being a marginal pass, 4 average, 5 honors, and 6 Godlike.
Originally, IIRC, our A-F scale corresponded to a 100 percentile scale.
90-100 A Excellent/Outstanding
80-89 B Good/Very Good
70-79 C Acceptable/marginal
60-69 D Poor/barely passable
0-59 F Fail
It still is this in most public schools. When I have to modify some kids, I go back to this. Our system is a more difficult scale:
LOL, I didn't want to do the +'s -'s and nothings.
I do recall seeing that altered scale at one point. As I recall, where I was, it was based on 8's.
68 - 75 D
I alwasy thought it was ripoff.
