While agree that grades should represent understanding of the materials rather than innate intelligence, I think Danielle meant that marks should be based on knowledge, rather than homework completion.
Smart is something subjective. It is a gift from god that not everyone is given meaning to say that not everyone is smart.But the thing that differentiate students is attitude and discipline. If such law is implemented it corrupts the educatiom system and
that is how it's done isn't it, is in the UK anyway your grades are based on your final exams
It should not be based on having done all of the homework, but the homework, assignments and tests are how the teachers know how well the students grasp the material. Without it, they are just guessing how much the students know.
Some teachers only use tests for grades, but this can punish people who just are not good at taking tests, so others include homework marks.
