The value of learning is seeing how much knowledge you can obtain and use in life. If you didn't learn anything, then you wouldn't be able to go anywhere in life. So learning is very important to get where you want to go. The purpose of grades is to test your knowledge and how much you have learned and applied that knowledge to every day life.

If you take this question and apply it to today, learning is one of the most important things for being successful. For example, people who didn’t go to high school or college do not have a high chance for being hired for a very well paying job. Learning ties into education and that is what is important. In order to do what you want, to fulfill your dreams, you first have to learn the basics and then learn how to do it well. Grades serve a purpose only to show what you are expected to get, or what the teacher is expecting from you. Someone may have written their best paper they have ever written, but to the teacher it may only be a D or C report, only because they have seen better work. Grades serve as a starting point as to see where it is that you excelled and didn’t outclass in high school or college. Grades only serve as a reference point, but also can be rewarding when you know you have done work up to the standards of your teacher.

The value of learning is the knowledge and ability to apply yourself throughout life. Without knowledge and education you cannot keep up in today's workplace. An example of this is that you have a much better chance of getting a job with a college education, a very lesser chance with only a high school education, and no chance without graduating high school. The point of grades is to show you how well you are learning the material, and to let you know if you are not learning it well enough.

The value of learning is to satisfy our curiosity and to provide a challenge in life. Although sometimes in high school we aren’t very interested in some aspects of the whole learning thing, that is why we go to college. To learn about what interests us and achieve our dreams and goals. Grades are a way of pushing you to do your best. Grading is based off the teacher’s point of view, you can write an amazing paper and get a D, like Sam said, but to you it’s your best. I think grades should be based off of your own achievements and abilities.

The value of learning is that it creates all kinds of possibilities. Knowledge can take you anywhere and allow you to do anything you want. A good education will make life better and create a future. Grades are important in school to show whether you understand the material and if you can apply it, but grades are only good for school. There are no grades in the "real world".

The value of learning is to prepare us for the "real world" even then we still learn. But if you do not have any knowledge, you will struggle in the advance world. Grades are just a way to "show" how you are doing in your class. However, they are simply ink on a piece of printer paper...

The value of learning is knowing and understanding what you are learning. Because if you dont know or understand what you are learning then theres no value to that. We value learning because we want to be educated and successful. Also students that go to school and get education have a much greater chance to succeed and get a descent job than the kids who dont go to school. Its mostly because the students who finish highschool and college have education and if you want good well payed jobs,their always going to be looking for well experienced and well educated students,with highschool diplomas and especially major or bachelors degree. The purpose of grades shows how well you do in that class and how much your learning as an individual. Grades is how you and your teacher can tell if your doing good or not. Grades are very important because if you want to go to college thats the one thing they look at the most and also your grades decide whether you can graduate or not.

The value of learning is the knowledge that you need to survive in todays world. You have to be able to learn and apply it to yourself in todays world. If you even want a decent job you have to go to college. If you can't learn you can't keep up with all this new technology. Grades are there to prove how well you know your stuff. An example being you think you really understand the stuff and then the test roles around and you sucked. Grades are there to show you how well you really know the stuff.

The value of learning is different to every person, for me learning will hopefully lead to a successful future in a respected profession. Grades are technically a reflection on what you learn in class, a composition of test scores, homework and participation. To me grades are part of my GPA if they are good they look better to colleges and to my parents, bad grades reflect poorly on my understanding of the material, or they make me look lazy and uninterested.

Learning is what we do everyday in life. If we didn't learn, I don't know what we would do. Even on days when you're not at school, you learn something. Learning is an ongoing thing and is very important to life and how far you get. Grades show how hard you try to learn. If you get good grades then you obviosly enjoy learning and want to learn as much as possible. If you get bad grades then you don't want to obtain more knowledge and be more ready for the real world. Learning and grades are the building block for a young person, because if they do those two things well, they will be able to go far in life.

I think that learning doesn't have much vaule in itself. We will never use much of what we learned in school again. The vaule in school is not what we learned but how we learned. School teaches us how to learn. How to adapt to different envorments that can be found in the working world. I think that grades give us modivation to be in school. They givr us a reason to attend school and give us the will power to do our best.

Learning is a very important key to success in our society. Without learning, we wouldn't have the knowledge that we need to be able to succceed in this world. Like Sarah said, to be able to learn and understand helps us to figure out what our interests are and what we want to do with our lives. The purpose of grades is to encourage people to strive for excellence so they can achieve excellence in the future. By working hard and getting good grades today, you can be accepted by good colleges and get a good start in your life.

I think that the value of learning to to understand what you are being tought. If you dont understand what you are learning then you aren't getting anything out of it. So going off of what Kristie said if you didn't learn anything you can't use that in the real world. And I think that the purpose of grades is to make kids want to do well. If they don't want to apply themselves and they don't care where they go in life, they go for low grades or they don't even try. But, if kids want to actually do something in life then they are forced to do well and grades reflect on how well you are doing. It is also a reflection on how much you learned or already knew.

The value of learning is not to be the smartest one in the class, but to prepare ourselves for anything that may come our way. Throughout our lifetime we are bombarded with new information and new material that we must know in order to insure our survival of humans. Without knowledge no one and nothing can move forward and make progress in life.
The purpose of grades is to actually literally tell the students how much knowledge and thought was put into the assignment. It is sort of saddening in a way that we have to put so much emphasis on A,B,C,D, or F's where our educational future is dependant of how high our gpa is. One cannot put a price on knowledge. Knowledge is knowledge.

The value of learning is to expand your mind to a new atmosphere. By that I mean that one will learn the roles and confidence to go into the world. Everyday you learn new and exciting things that can halp you in life.
The purpose of grades are to let students and family members know how the student is doing in class. It also shows the points in the class that you are struggling and could be helpful for preparing to study.

The value of learning is to show that you can take the information being taught to and apply it to the real world. Learning can also show you that you have the ability to do something new and not always be stuck in what you feel comfortable doing or believing. The purpose of grades is to show yourself, the teacher, and your parents what you can remeber from what you have learned. Going back to what i first said about learning, grades is a way to prove to people that you can learn and remember what you learned.

To me the value of learning is that later on in life it will help a lot to know all of the things that we are tought in school. It will make us better people, people that can hold an inteligant conversation and not sound ignorent. For these big bussiness's you have to obtain great amounts of knowledge to get hired with the company and make the kind of money you want. But on the other hand I think that grades are something competitive that people made up a long time ago. Parents wanted some sort of system to show how well they are doing. I personally think that grades do not help me set goal's because eventhough someone get's bad grades it could easily be something like not doing well on test's or not doing their homework.

The value of learning is to be able to fit in with our culture and be a knowledgable adult. The purpose of grades are to compare you with the rest of your classmates. Grades are also used to determine your understanding of a subject. Rsponsibility is taught through grades because the people that are irresponsible tend not to do their homework and end up with a lower grade.

The value of learning is to use those concepts later on in life. To apply them to what you can do for a career. The purpose of grades is to compair you to everone else. To see if you are "average". Like the CSAPS, you are nothing but a number. You are on a scale that just compairs you to everyone else.

The value of learning is very important to life. The only way you can know things and have knowledge is by learning. You learn something new everyday, whether it's something simple or something difficult, you will learn and use know for the rest of your life. The purpose of grades is to see your learning progress. Also a purpose for grades is to see what your skills lack in and what you need more help on.

The value of learning is being able to hold your own in our society. If you are a very learned person, then the chances of success are far better then if you are not. Grades are here to kind of gauge your learning, to show you how you are doing in the classroom environment. But the purpose of learning is not to get good grades, it is to take away skills and information that will help you do well in life.

The value of learning is to create an understanding of what life has in store for us. It also gives us the knowledge we obtain to move on and learn from life. The purpose of grades are to test your ability to learn and the knowledge that you have gained. As well as the progress you have made for.

The value of leanering means alot. Learning is seeing how much information you can get from school. And use it in the future. In todays time you almost need a good education to support yourself when you become an adult. Grades are important too. In my opinion grades show your progress in a certian subject and show how well you are learning the material.

Learning is the most important tool we have. It builds youth and makes adults better at what they do. You learn something new everyday. Grades are useful because they show your success. They help you get into college and help you adavance your mind power throughout you life.

The value of learning is “learning” in itself. To make it through life on a successful path, it’s an obligation to have experience and knowledge. If one doesn’t learn anything during life, they have absolutely no future. Grades show how well you have learned and the effort you have put into the course. After each semester we get grades to show how we have improved over each thing we leaned. If there were no grades, people wouldn’t even bother to try.

To me, the value of learning is so that we can lead a succsueful life after high school or college. Also, without learning life would be boring because we wouldnt have anything to do. I personally dont think grades are important. Even if you learn more in one semester of a class, you can still get a d in it. Your grade dosent nesisarily represent your learning in a certin class.

I find that a lot of people take learning for granted. I think the value of learning is to be educated. Period. There is nothing like the feeling of embarassment when you say something stupid. Being literate and intellegent is something very important to me. I really don't know the purpose of grades. I think it is to compare you to other students who are better at test scoring. If you do all your homework but aren't the best test taker it effects your grade. I think if you understand the material, are responsible and do the homework and take something out of the class that you can use later in life then you are set. I hate grades. :]
