A Law College is proposing to raise the required grade average from 5/10 to 7/10 to graduate, claiming that it's going to improve the students overall performance.
Are there any studies to support this claim?
How grading works in this case
Along with the changes of grading standards, the Law College is also going to enforce the in-class activities. Professors would then be obligated to apply middle and final tests (only finals were mandatory) along with in-class activities representing 30% of the final grade (completely optional untill then). However, professors are still going to be very autonomous when it comes to making and grading the tests.
