Sault College students vote on grading system

March 18, 2008

The Students Administrative Council at Sault College, in Sault Ste Marie Ontario, is holding a referendum this week on whether the College should change from a system of letter grades to numerical percentages.  Most Ontario colleges currently use the letter grade system; students believe that percentages would be more transferable to universities.  The board of governors at the College is apparently divided on the issue. The referendum, the first in a decade, will take place tomorrow, and will result in a recommendation from SAC to the College administration.  Soo News | The Sault Star
