Yes, it was stupid and all the students got lazy. Failed experiment.

Yes, but I've forgotten which one. I've gone to too many schools. Grades were E,S,M, F, T. I had a few Pass/Fail classes at KU.

E-S-M-I-F My dad paid 50 cents for E's.
We paid him 50 cents for I's and a dollar for F's.

My brother got rich and I went into debt. LOL

Ha! My mom did the same one semester, but for much higher stakes: $25 for A's, $10 for B's, $0 for C's, -$10 for D's, and -$25 for F's. I broke the bank. My sister paid up. We never did it again.

In the school of hard knocks, there is only pass / fail.

E- Excellent S - Satisfactory M - Average I - Inferior F - Fail

The problem with the SBG system is that NO ONE gets a "Fail" grade. What incentive do students have to improve if you never tell them they are not working hard enough to receive a passing grade? What incentive does a student have to obtain an "Execellent" mark if you tell them all students are "Satisfactory"? Etc..... This SBG system does nothing to encourage confidence in students which allows them to be successful in their lives. All it does is teach them to "average".

I think my school only had a C-F scale, but I'm not sure. It was a long time ago.

School of Rock.

Either you receive the rock fingers or you don't.
