This proposal is troubling because it could negatively affect Yale's atmosphere. It could make students far too focused on grades and it could make the academic environment more competitive and stressful. Please sign this petition to make sure students' voices are heard.
This proposal will negatively affect Yale's atmosphere. It will make students far too focused on grades and it will make the academic environment more competitive and more stressful. If this proposal passes, students will be less willing to take classes outside of their majors and instead will take classes based on easy grading.
This proposal will make grading more difficult for certain members of the faculty; how does one distinguish between, say, a 92 and a 93 on a paper or project? There are so many classes and assignments for which this proposal makes no sense.
Please, attend the faculty meeting and vote no on the proposed changes to the grading system.
