Grading System vs marking system
As we have shifted to a new paradigm of evaluation that is grading system. The reason being that it reduces the stress and burden on the learner. But there are reports of students unhappy with their achievement score and had been mentally noneffective. Moreover, those who came from the marking system have adopted the grading system with the mindset of mere conversion of marks into grades or percentage equivalent.
Therefore, is grading system a mere conversion of marking system or is it much more. Which is appropriate to assess students' performance?
