You cant grade on a curve, since a curve is a shape, not a figure of measurement.

Con

A grade on a curve isnt truely fair to those who actually work hard

Pro

But it is fair because grades are relative. There are always one or two students that are higher then the rest. Then the majority, low A's, B's, and C's. Then at the bottom there is a D.

Con

Curved grades put students against each other.

Pro

Curved Grades may cause trouble within students, but it helps students get to their "full potential." If you limit some kids, and push some kids up, its just going to hurt the students more, and consequentially dropping their grades. When you grade on a curve, it helps kids on different levels.
