Description: Among American universities, admissions decisions consider the grade point average (GPA) as one of the variables that determines a student’s acceptance into a program. Having accurate and uniform calculations of the GPA are essential when establishing best practice policies at institutions and evaluating foreign credentials makes these matters even more nuanced. Given the varying interpretations of grading scales from other systems of education, this webinar focuses on the grade of failure, provides multiple perspectives on how they affect credential evaluation and illustrates inevitable inequalities in institutional and organizational guidelines.
