Here is a summary of the results of the grade survey that was conducted a few weeks ago: Grade survey results - Google Slides. These results will be discussed in the TFM programme committee on Dec 15th.
Most important points:
- 68% prefer a numerical grade
– according to the answers, it maintains motivation and rewards hard work
- 32% prefer pass/fail
– according to the answers, it’s less stressful and there’s a bigger focus on learning
- many respondents understand the pros and cons of both
Moving to a pass/fail system probably wouldn’t be wise, but one suggestion is to keep basic and major studies as 0-5 but move elective and/or minor studies to pass/fail.
