No one has an “A?”
That’s right. No student has received an “A” on any assignment, quiz, test, exam, or report card since the year 2000.
No one is making an “A.” No one is making a “B.” No one is making a “C.” No one is making a “D.”
No one is making an “E.” No one is making an “F.” No one is making a “G.” No one is making an “H.”
Okay, maybe you’re getting the idea. We haven’t used letter grades since the year 2000.
“Wait!” some of you are saying. “The report cards have letter grade charts on the bottom!”
Sure—but that’s just there so that you can comply with laws that say “Students need a C average to do such-and-such.” We don’t actually report or use a letter grade for anything.
“So how do I know whether or not I’ve got a good grade?” some others ask.
Easy! Higher numbers are better; lower numbers are worse. Is your number high enough to satisfy you?
And the difference between an 84 and an 85 is the same as the difference between an 85 and an 86!
