Definitions for "Grades"
Letters used to indicate the quality of academic work completed in a given course: A, A-, B+, B, B-, C+, C, C-, D+, D, D-, F, I, S, U, P, N, W.
Professors give letter grades to show the quality of a student's work. The grade tells how well the student is performing on tests, research papers, and class participation. Most colleges or universities require that students maintain a minimum grade point average to continue their studies. Here are the grades and the grade point averages: A+ (4.0) A (4.0) A– (3.7) (excellent) C+ (2.3) C (2.0) C– (1.7) (average) F (0) (failure) B+ (3.3) B (3.0) B– (2.7) (above average) D+ (1.3) D (1.0) D– (0.7) (poor)
Evaluative scores provided for each course, and often for individual examinations or papers written for that course. There are letter grades (usually A, B, C, D, F) and number grades (usually percentages from 0% to 100%), or on a scale of 0 to 3, 0 to 4, or 0 to 5. Some schools use a pass/fail system with no grades.
If I were asked to enumerate ten educational stupidities, the giving of grades would head the list... If I can't give a child a better reason for studying than a grade on a report card, I ought to lock my desk and go home and stay there. Dorothy De Zouche
