Grading system does not provide an opportunity to make the child think out of the box or freely develop the thinking about any inkling of an idea or get involved with any of the intellectual speculation.

But still, this method is widely regarded in many of the schools across the world and is kept as a strong and a viable medium to adjudge a child’s grasping and reciprocating ability by grading them.

The primeval type of appraisal was by the marks where the marks for all the questions were totalled to get grand total marks.

There are 5 types of Grading systems available such as: 1)Percentage Grading – From 0 to 100 Percent 2)Letter grading and variations – From A Grade to F Grade 3)Norm-referenced grading – Comparing students to each other usually letter grades 4)Mastery grading – Grading students as “masters” or “passers” when their attainment reaches a specified level 5)Standards (or Absolute-Standards) grading – Comparing student performance to a pre-established standard (level) of performance There are many people who declare there are many advantages of modern education system and there are also others who say the complete opposite. Well, both the sides have a fair share of arguments to support their views completely.

When all that required is a mere pass mark, we would neither have the urge to outperform others nor do we want to excel with the overall grades.

The A grade speaks a lot about our calibre than a D or an F. With a D or an F, we can be only satisfied that we are okay enough in studies, which will make us go lazy.

Not an accurate representation of the performance and the knowledge gained: As we have said already, passing in an examination cannot be considered as plausible enough to declare that the same student has gained an immense amount of knowledge by these exams.

An alphabet cannot explain the inner knowledge gained by a student and there is no easy way of gauging a student’s level of performance and knowledge in the examinations.

It is not an exact scoring system: Suppose, let us consider that the science subject is your weak point and with a tremendous effort, let us say that you got an A or a C for all your attempts, which would have made a vast disparity in your sense of accomplishment.

Still, the inner knowledge you have gained via these grades can be nil, as you may have attempted for learning without understanding the concept, with the sole perspective of getting an A or a C.
