Quality Point System Reflects Student Achievement.
Gramling, Phil; Nelson, Major
A rationale, goals, and the procedure for instituting a quality point system to assess high school students' academic achievement in Gainesville (Georgia) High School are outlined. Hypothetical examples of converting grade point averages to quality point averages in low, average, and high difficulty courses are provided to show the impact of the procedure on student averages. Potential application to honors and class ranking determinations are described. Also provided are the responses and concerns of the Gainesville City Board of Education to this innovation. Concerns addressed include developing the procedure for assigning quality points, alerting college personnel to the system, and informing staff, students, and parents of the new procedure. (LP)
