A new report says that more rigorous and stricter evaluation of college grades will raise student achievement across all schools and colleges worldwide.

College administrators who wish to improve students performance must first start with validated grading data across their districts.

Grading data must be in a common format to facilitate teachers understanding how their grading methods compare with their colleagues standards.

Next, teachers will need to make sure pupils understand the greater grading standards, and what they have to perform to achieve high marks.

"If there's legitimate room for a student to improve, teachers should think about whether giving a student a top grade is actually what will help the student in the real world. Teachers must realise that suggesting to a student there is no space for progress might not be 100% beneficial" Andrew says.

In the end, the analysis found no evidence that low grades discourage students or direct them to eventually become disengaged or stop contributing to society.

"There are no doubts that grades play a substantial role since if there are no accurate details about a student's strengths and weaknesses, then it's fairly hard to help the student improve and the best way to support what a student must study more," Andrew says.

"Having too many grading levels generates a sense of complacency where there appears an impossible level of effort and interest from students, parents and teachers have to weigh up the pros and cons."

Teachers and parents will often have high expectations with students. However do not be obsessed with a grading letter or number, says education and tech author Adam Jacob, a former instructor who is currently a consultant with silicon valley startup software costs a resource which centers on learning guides and advice.

For classroom teacher, Sarah Kohen states that she was a adamant grader who eventually went gradeless.

"Too much traditional instruction in the classroom mandates this notion that students expect a number grade in order to succeed with their education," says Kohen, author of 10x Learning: 10 plans to boost Traditional Grades in college.

"Students can and do grow with no grades, provided that expectations between teacher, students are both clear and they're in a safe learning environment with a support network."

"Although there might be pressure to get the highest grades possible, in the very long run, that may not be helping students as much as you think, it might even be damaging them," says the study's author, Andrew Blumer an economics teacher for 4 years and founder of fintech startup compare brokers.

A study by Andrew revealed that the benefit of tougher grading criteria may have an impact on a student's life that can last for up to four decades.

Furthermore, it found that stricter grading standards have a inclination to be higher in schools with wealthier pupils.

Schools with wealthier pupils often had teachers who attended more selective post graduate educational institutions often have multiple graduate or doctorate degrees. It was found teachers from these institutions were the toughest graders.

When grading students with low grades we basically are telling them they are not good enough.

We then put them in a position to dig themselves out of a hole. Teachers need to be very precise with what they are trying to communicate to a student with applying grades.
