Adam Yankay – The UN-Meaning of Grades

Which is better: a 16 ft. long jump or a 5 min. mile? Could a B in Honors Chemistry be better than an A- in French? What do grades actually mean? There are a couple of common responses to that question that compare and contrast with how we use grades. This webinar will use basic statistics to show how the assumptions we make when using grades to compare students between and even within classes may not be as straightforward or even as valid as we think. Prepare to question how final grades are made! Presented by Adam Yankay.
