    Is our quandary arising over the fact that in education, we always say that students earn their points, when in fact all they do is lose points. If they actually earned them, wouldn’t they start from zero and build up?

    It would be so much easier to devise a grading system if points were actual demarcations of objectives (standards) mastered. Instead, we propose (and essentially front-load the expected points) they master 100% of the standards and dock for anything less.

    Or are the points essentially on loan, and if their grade goes down it means their collateral (learning) diminishes in value?

    Saying that, if a student does absolutely nothing, should they get a zero? What does a zero mean to a student who hasn’t already made the connect between the points system and the learning involved?

    If they don’t get it, most students don’t, what’s the point (no pun intended) anyway? I’ve only been teaching 10 years, and every year I notice this disconnect, and the current system is only making it worse. I love reading this stuff and trying to incorporate it into my system.
