Everyone thinks differently of grades. In my opinion the purpose of grades is to rank students and put them into catergories. I think the only reason schools use the current 100 point scale system is because it is easy. 100 is an easy number to work with and grade with. I don't think this system is accurate, becuase some people may be very smart, but get nervous when taking a test and get a bad grade. Students may understand what they are learning in class, but are rushed when taking an assessment. I think that we should change the way students are being graded. We should use some things from the traditional grading system and the standard-based grading system. Grading should be changed.
