Grades: Strandard-based or Letter Grades.
Grades can be what make or break you as a student. The purpose of grades is to asses how much you are learning. To be honest I don't mind the grading system we have now. Since it is all numbers and letters the grades are based primarily on how much you understand the concept. By using the 100 point grading system a teacher can't take off 5 points because they don't like you. It is also easy to calculate how many things you got wrong by looking at your grade. If each questions worth 10 points and you get a 90% you got two questions wrong. The system we have no is easily understood and doesn't have any major problems.
