When we deliver our college applications to colleges we provide each college with a school profile which details our course leveling system and curriculum. With our new proposal we would include, on the transcript and profile, a weighted GPA distribution for each particular class (as shown above).
We are not proposing to eliminate all data that we provide colleges and universities. The new system we are proposing will still allow colleges and universities (and students) to compare students against his or her peers. Students will still try and achieve the highest GPA. Colleges will have a clear picture of the class with the weighted GPA distribution. Competition will still be here, it just won’t be based on a single number attached to a student, it will be based on course rigor.
