Question

Will 10 extra credit points help a child's grade majorly?

says:

No, and more importantly it won't help your child's learning. Extra credit should be abolished
because all it does is artificially inflate grades. Grades should be accurate indicators of
student achievement and shouldn't be inflated by extra credit or points for being nice or
trying hard.
