Would using another method other than the grading system be more effective to students and their work ethic in the classrooms Is the grading system the best way to determine the success of students and lead them to their future Are students more focused on getting a good grade so it will help their GPA and help them succeed in the future Many people could say that they agree with the grading system and say it is very effective in inspiring students to do well in school and that the grading system keeps them focused on keeping their grades up but Steven Vogel and Jerry Farber argue about this theory Steven Vogel argues in Grades and Money and Jerry Farber makes his case in A Young Persons Guide to the Grading System Vogel states that If grades are money then learning is a cost Vogel 391 Vogel claims that students take classes that are easy so they can get a good grade in the class and it will improve their GPA which leads to how it will help the students get into a post graduate school or how it will look better on their rsum for a job in the future Farber claims Theres no question that the grading system is effective in training people to do what theyre told Farber 385 but what does it do for their learning Farber also makes an argument about how we study really hard and try hard throughout the semester to get a good grade in the class or on the final but what we retain after the class is irrelevant Both Farber and Vogel agree on one point Students maintain their grades only for their progression in the classes they are taking at that time After the students finish with classes that term they dont go back and look in their textbooks or try to learn anything about the context of that class they just move on
