Some teachers believe that assigning a student a low grade will prevent them from exceeding, or worse yet, keep them from entering the college of their choice, or any college at all. In contrast, there are teachers that believe it is important to recognize and assign grades according to what is earned. Should teachers simply assign a high grade or assign the grade based on academic performance?I fully believe that a teacher should assign a grade solely based on the assignment that is being given. I also, however, believe that at a younger age, a teacher should give some discretion if the assignment is based upon opinions, etc. I think that it is important for any student to express their views without the concern of their grade being high/low based on the assignment. However, if the assignment is based solely upon fact, I definitely believe that it should be graded based upon performance. I understand the thought that some students may get discouraged or may be prohibited from college courses or specific colleges, but if an educator provides students high grades solely because of this, they are hindering the childs future. Not every educator grades the same. Not every educator is going to feel the same as the other. Therefore, providing a bias for one reason or the other may give a child a false sense of security, and this may lead that child to believe that they do not need to work harder, strive for better grades, and generally be a better student.Purdue University has a good motto as to how grades should be given to a student. It is one that I believe should be used as a guide. The motto is as follows: Assigning grades is one of the most difficult and emotion-laden tasks for an instructor. It is also a task for which instructors have had little professional preparation. You can spend less time assigning grades and have more confidence in them if you have a well-conceived system for grading. Students appreciate a grading system that is impartial, understandable, and justifiable. There are at least six functions of grades. Grades, according to Purdue University:
Provide feedback to students and keep them apprised of their progress.
Help students evaluate their own strengths and weaknesses.
Motivate students to learn. Grades can be overemphasized, but when used properly they serve as a positive motivating factor by rewarding students for their progress.
Provide information to help students make decisions about future courses and career choices.
Communicate student achievement to others potential employers, graduate schools, etc.
Select students for special programs (such as remedial or advanced) or allow them to waive requirements.
