And just suppose you had no grade...


A [physicist and a biochemist have a conversation about grades](http://scienceblogs.com/dotphysics/2010/08/and_just_suppose_you_had_no_gr.php?utm_source=selectfeed&utm_medium=rss"), decide that grades are dumb.

>We were talking (and surprisingly agreeing) that grades were dumb. What would happen if we stopped grading? Wouldn't that be awesome?

>So, what would happen if there were no grades? Here are some thoughts.

Read [the post for some of their thoughts](http://scienceblogs.com/dotphysics/2010/08/and_just_suppose_you_had_no_gr.php?utm_source=selectfeed&utm_medium=rss"). What's interesting to me is that these aren't long-haired lefty liberal hippies calling for The End of Education. They are scientists and educators, realizing that grades don't do what we think they do, and how that negatively effects the education experience.
