Grading is an integral part of the teaching process that helps teachers assess students' progress. An example of a grade calculation is the four-point system.
The four-point system is used in many American schools, and it has been adapted for use in other countries as well. The four points are assigned as follows: A=4, B=3, C=2, D=1.
Students would remember how their grades can be calculated by remembering the acronym “ABCD”.
In American schools, there are two primary types of grading schemes: letter grades and percentages. Letter grades typically range from A+ to F with a median grade being B-. In order to receive an A+, the student must perform above and beyond what is typically expected for their grade level. Percentage grading is typically given as a percentage. For example, one could say the student had a 98% grade.
