Question

My son's IB elemetary school uses the following grading scale: 93-100-A/87-92-B/78-86-C/70-77-D/ and 0-69-F. Should a good grading scale have even divisions?

says:

A good grading scale, especially in an IB school, should not use percentages; it should use a
number of levels representing different levels of proficiency, or the lack thereof.
