Do you "bump up" a student's grade because he is a point away from the next letter grade? This seems to be common practice with some of my coworkers, but not at all with others. For instance, if a 90 -100 is an A and a student earns an 89, would you give him the 90 so he can have an A in the class? If so, under what circumstances? Grades are due soon where I work and there are always discussions about students and their grades this time of the year. I rarely change a student's grade to an A or a B. I figure if you are an A or B student, you wouldn't need the extra point. When I see that a student consistently does well but has one single low grade that brings him down, I might exempt that grade in order to get the child where I believe he deserves to be. How often do parents and/or coaches ask you to change grades after they have been posted? This seems to happen a lot at my school. Parents of students with an 89 will ask for the bump. Coaches of failing students will ask for a passing grade. If they do ask, do you comply?
