Letter Grades Versus Percentage Grades
音量
Hello I'm Milo for About.com and today we're talking about letter grades versus percentage grades.The biggest difference between letter grades and percentage grades is that the percentage is a bit more precise marker of how a student did against what is considered a complete or perfect score. For instance, after you have calculated the percentage grade you then round it into a letter grade.A typical letter grade system is:So obviously knowing that a student scored 75 percent is a bit more precise than knowing a student got a C. This is why some systems incorporate pluses and minuses, such as C plus or A minus. Some consider the rounding to a letter grade to be unhelpful. Especially when F, for instance, sounds so final. It is hard not to take it as a personal evaluation. To get around that some systems use E for effort instead or drop the letters altogether.However, on the bigger picture, while percentages are a bit more precise then letter grades, they are still giving the teacher same basic information. They are telling the teacher if the student successfully completed a task or not that has been broken down into discrete parts, like a quiz with 10 distinct questions or an essay with 5 distinct measures. These scores do not relay the depth of information necessary to teach a student at their point of need. They do not speak to a student's inherent intelligence, ability to think or comprehend, and of course should never be used to label a student's learning identity.For more information on education, check us out at About.com.
