School Creates “Grade Bank” That Lets Students Borrow Grades to Pass Exams

Posted By Staff

Date: January 31st, 2017

loanChina – In an effort to ease the intense pressure that its students face in China’s notoriously rigid exam-based education system, a school in Nanjing has created a “grade bank” that lets students “borrow” grades so that they can pass exams, and then repay them in subsequent tests.

So here’s how it works: the innovative mark bank allows students to loan marks to make up for a failing grade in any exam.

But, just like regular banks, it requires “clients” to pay back the loan on time, with interest.

Thus, students have to make up for the loan by scoring extra points in future exams.  More

ucCalifornia – The chancellor at University of California Berkeley has an exit plan in case student protesters storm his office.

Nicholas Dirks, the school’s chancellor, installed a $9,000 escape hatch in a hallway outside his office to “provide egress” if potential student protesters descend on the administration building, according to the campus newspaper, The Daily Californian.

The emergency exit — built late last month — was ordered in response to an April 2015 protest during which students stormed the chancellor’s suite and staged a sit-in outside his office, the paper reported.

Students reportedly banged on desks and chanted loudly before being escorted out of the building, some in handcuffs.  More

Oberlin students want to abolish midterms and any grades below C

Posted By Staff

Date: May 25th, 2016

oberlinStudents at Oberlin College are asking the school to put academics on the back burner so they can better turn their attention to activism.

More than 1,300 students at the Midwestern liberal arts college have now signed a petition asking that the college get rid of any grade below a C for the semester, and some students are requesting alternatives to the standard written midterm examination, such as a conversation with a professor in lieu of an essay.

The students say that between their activism work and their heavy course load, finding success within the usual grading parameters is increasingly difficult.

“A lot of us worked alongside community members in Cleveland who were protesting,” Megan Bautista, a co-liaison in Oberlin’s student government, said, referring to the protests surrounding the shooting death of 12-year-old Tamir Rice by a police officer in 2014. “But we needed to organize on campus as well — it wasn’t sustainable to keep driving 40 minutes away. A lot of us started suffering academically.”  More
