Students should be encouraged to achieve high GPA scores and to do well in high-stakes exams, but they should also be urged to nurture personal passions and talents, and dare to explore new paths of knowledge.
New York City, NY (PRWEB) February 22, 2015
Ultimate Spelling™ devoted time recently to discussing the role played by the grade point average (GPA) in a student’s academic and professional success. eReflect, designer of the Ultimate Spelling™ learn to spell software , announced today that this discussion is needed, because parents, teachers, and the educational system in many countries often exaggerate the importance of having a stellar GPA.
In a recent post on the Ultimate Spelling™ blog, editors and readers are having a discussion about the GPA’s importance in modern life. The main highlight of the blog post is that while GPAs matter, their importance should be dialed down.
As the editor at Ultimate Spelling™ explains, a GPA is not a truly accurate reflection of a person’s intellectual ability, mastered skills, and talents. A GPA is only an approximation of a person’s learning ability and mastery. Therefore, it shouldn’t be the only way universities or employers evaluate potential enrollees and employees. The editor explains that a GPA, is relevant but certainly not the alpha and the omega, as many teachers and parents like to advocate.
Students should be encouraged to achieve high GPA scores and to do well in high-stakes exams, but they should also be urged to nurture personal passions and talents, and dare to explore new paths of knowledge. eReflect reminds students that a GPA is not a valid measure for how a person should be evaluated and treated as a whole.
“Don’t think for one moment that a GPA is a complete assessment of your worth as an individual, or that it fully illustrates your potential and skills," the company reminds readers. "It’s just a number seeking to generalize your academic performance and provide a succinct picture of who you could be in the educational arena.”
The editor at the spelling tutor software blog advises students to think carefully of their future and what's truly importance. While a GPA will open many doors and increase a person’s possibilities for professional success, it is not the only way to do it. History has many examples of people who become self-made millionaires without higher education, and with only their talent and intellect as their assets. Spelling program designer eReflect encourages students to read the full post on the blog, as it will put the GPA issue in perspective for them.
