Quote from: KJ on November 16, 2010, 07:09:30 PMI didn't read the full article, but it doesn't seem that bad to me. I mean, sure, there will be kids that abuse it, but in the end they still have to learn the material and take the tests, etc. to show they deserve a good grade. I'd hate it if I took a test on a subject a week after learning it and failed. It would affect my entire GPA and hinder me. But then by the end of the year I might have fully grasped the concept and then ace the section of the final exam pertaining to the subject I had failed before. Regardless of learning the material, your grades reflect how you were before, as well as now. Which, in the end, brings you down when all the quarter grades are put together. Not understanding a concept at the beginning of the year shouldn't matter, as long as you full master the material by the end of it. In that way, people viewing your grades will see how smart you are, not the averages of your previous failures mixed in with your later conquests.Sure, you can still get bad grades. But at least under this system it is easier to redeem yourself by the end of the year.
