Did she really graduate from Berkeley and Harvard? Those institutions need to be held accountable


I'll just leave this here:

Professors allow students to pick their own grade

Quote:
Contract grading has also been referred to as specs grading in a 2016 op-ed in Inside Higher Ed by Linda Nilson, director of the office of teaching effectiveness and innovation at Clemson University. She explains that course grades are based on the bundles of assignments and tests that students complete at a pass/satisfactory level.

Bundles that require more work, more challenging work or both earn students higher grades. No more points to painstakingly allocate and haggle over with students. By choosing the bundle they want to complete, students select the final grade they want to earn, taking into account their motivation, time available, grade point needs and commitment, Nilson stated.
