Congratulations to Ania on the dissertation, and the job, and the ten
pound note. Your post also brought up a question thatc I'll ask to the
whole list, since we are such an international crowd.
I teach at a university in the United States (I teach Spanish) and in
our unit on Universities, we talked about the grading system in Spain,
which is on a 0 to 10 point scale, with 5 points being passing, and
along with the number there is a one word grade--for 5, it is aprobado,
or "passing". Here in the US we usually grade 0-100%, with the percent
corresponding to a letter grade F--A (but no E, for some reason), with
a passing grade varying, but where I teach,a 59% is the lowest passing
grade (a D--). That's why I was interested in Ania' 63 (it was 63,
wasn't it?) which for what I teach would be barely passing, so i am
glad you let us know that was a very good score. The reason this was on
my mind is because yetserday I turned in final grades.
So, international list, anyone want to share grading around the world?
