Summary

Beatrice high school is faced with the need to provide class ranking for students at the same time that it has courses at three levels of difficulty for the normal student and at a fourth level for the educable mentally handicapped. In order to develop an equitable class-ranking system, an honor point system was adopted to relate grades in more difficult classes to grades in less difficult classes. This system allows the full range of grades to be given in classes at each difficulty level. In order to avoid basing class rank on grade point alone, the system also considers the number of classes a student takes. The result has been to encourage students concerned about high class-standing to take more courses, to take courses of high difficulty, and to earn the highest grades possible. (Author/IRT)
