BTW, if they dont have grades, then how do they make sure the students learn?
The teachers give a pass fail by the teachers evaluation, which is why some of the claims made by the video you provided were clearly not realistic to me. If you piss off a teacher enough they can simply fail you in the course and without grades you have no recourse. I personally didn't like the idea as I want feedback or metrics, so I can't answer why others may find the idea compelling.
