USA Education Grade Inflation
Debate Rounds (3)
Now that I have done that; let's get started.
I would have to disagree with you. Have you ever thought that maybe kids just want to succeed? Therefore, they are getting better grades than in previous years and they work hard for those grades? This system of A, B, C, D, E (or F wherever you live) is something that gives a kid the desire to do better if that kid receives anything with a C or lower. If a kid gets an A; he or she get a sense of accomplishment which would give them an enhanced desire to do better. I think it is a perfect system.
Take the example of a curved test score. In Class A there is a student who get a 100. There would be no curve. The highest score in Class B (let's say it's the same subject and teacher just different periods) is an 80. There's a curve. How is it fair to students of Class A? It is not at all. Students of Class A who received an 80 knew the same amount of information as the student in Class B, but the two of them will receive different grades.
Curves aren't exactly the same as grade inflation, but they effect one another.
Look at this way. The student that received an 80 in class A might have known different portions that of the student in Class B who ALSO received an 80. It all depends on what they know. The questions that they got right might be completely or closely different than that of the student in Class A. It, basically, is all based on what THEY know.
