    When my kid switched from elementary to middle school, he finally started getting grades in the traditional format of A-E(F).  

    It was then that I realized that we are giving little kids these confusing representations of their success. We grade little kids with things like S! or N!  or E for Excllent.

    Kids in elementary school often receive grades that are check marks or plus signs.  

    They'd probably be more likely to be less confused about what they're supposed to do to get better if they didn't get such convoluted grades in grade school.  

    Anyway, I give your assessment of the assessments and M+ for major metatastical analysisizationism.  

    forecasters of disasters show proofs that show they're right, but you can block out anything counting each fluorescent light...
