Grades...

The purpose of grades in the academic system here in the U.S. is simple, to show progress of students, and they reflect how both a/the student and teacher is doing. But I feel that the current 1-100 percent grading system is becoming obsolete, and that a standards-based grading system is more suited to our goal-achieving prospect. I say this because the standards-based system better reflects how the student is doing by pointing out what specific skill or skills the student is slacking in. Then the student can focus more on improving those skills or that skill. We need to start implementing these grading techniques so we can improve our academic system.
