Today alot of students are more concerned with receiving a high gpa than learning the course content. If we can find a way to change the perception ( among student and parents) that having a high GPA is more important than learning the course objectives , then we can move towards focusing on the learning objectives. This can lead toward greater retention of content and better application of knowledge.
