I said that I would give them a C (70). They liked this answer. The by the book way to score this is to give the kid the average of all 4 quarters - and an F. I said that this would kill the spirit of the kid and the interest to learn. They followed up with "what if there was abuse in the home during Q1? a divorce? homelessness?" and a few others. "Would it matter if the kid was rich and drove to school in the BMW?"
