Q: In some classes, course grades are based solely on exams, while in other classes, grades are based more on class participation than on exams. Which type of grading do you prefer? Use specific reasons to support your response

In my view, class should have both exam based as well as participation based grading system. I feel, if we want all rounder students then it will be a best grading system. In the following essays I will put some points that will explain reasons for my choice.

First, exam based grading system will make student to study well. They will concentrate more in class and try to improve their grades. It will incline their wisdom but not the smartness. If we have only participation based grading system then student will start to ignore class studies. Consequently, they will be poor in subjects that are pretty much required for specialization. It will turn them into bookworm and they will lack the leadership qualities.

Participation based grading system will force students to participate in class activities like presentations, debate etc. This will improve their confidence, communication and leadership qualities required for outside world. It will give them chance to interact with each other helping to build socialism. They will get chance to make new friend. Sometimes this participation requires research; encouraging to study more. Only exam based system definitely improves their knowledge but knowledge from book is not sufficient alone.

If I think about the combination of exam based and participation based grading system then it will now only make a knowledgeable person but also smarter. This system will transform them into a complete package which will help them to survive in today’s world.

World is changing each and every day. To gain success in this world, we should have knowledge as well as leadership. You should be not only courageous to face any obstacle but also smart to find a way out. So for me, keeping both exams based and class participation based grading system will help us to achieve our goal and will make us a successful person.

You're essay is written as informal essay or personal essay, but it was nice. I just want to advise you to be aware in using punctuation and subordinating conjunction.

Overall, your essay is good. But, here are my two cents -

1. An essay should be like a narrative ( in general terms , A story) . I felt the points in your essay were a little disconnected in that respect. Going simply by placing of paragraphs, I would place the paragraph on "World is changing" right at the begining and then continue from there.

2. Check your punctuations one more time , the spellings and the prescribed word limit.

Rest all good. All the best
