THE SEVEN-YEAR MEDICAL COURSE.
Today a plan l‘or a seven-year medical course "will be sub
mitted to the faculty of the University for approval. Jn all
probability the plan will be endorsed, as it has already been
pa$sed on by the faculty of the medical school in Portland.
• Pew students realize the importance of the new plan, and
the effect which it will have on the University of Oregon. The
medical school of the University has been promised financial
aid by an eastern philanthropic institution, and the seven
year course is but. one step in the plan to make the medical
school of the University one of the best in the country and
Portland a medical center for the entire northwest.
' Uiider the plan proposed, the medical school, located on
Marqnam hill in Portland, is to be a nucleus for the medical
center. Already the Multnomah county hospital is located
there, and plans have already been made for specialized hos
pitals on the hill. No other medical school will rank with the
foremost of the country, and its graduates will be qualified to
prd&tice anywhere, or to continue into research work. It is
another step being taken by the University to raise the stand
ards of the school. t
The two game basketball series with O. A. C. this week
end should draw a fair sized crowd of loyal Oregon rooters to
Cpivgllis. When Oregon Fight mixes with the Corvallis
brdnd of ball, there is bound to be something doing.
Miss Edgington Desc r i b e s
New Grading Method.
Wish Grace Edgington, assistant pro
fessor of rhetoric, in « report of the
“weighted system” of grading, before
the faculty colloquium Tuesday at'tor
uoon, stated that such a system may be
introduced at Oregon.
Site told of the examination of the
catalogs of 53 colleges and universities
and'disclosed the fact that, fifty per cent
of tlje institutions weight their grades in
some manner. “The term weighting
grades is understood here to mean put
ting, a premium on good grades; putting
a penalty on poor grades, or both,” ex
plained Miss Kdgiugtou.
“Those institutions that do state a
restriction as to the quality of work re
quired as well as the qnautity for a de
grey. ate: Arizona, Indiana, Kentucky,
Minnesota, Nevada, Nebraska, Montana.
Ohio University, Amherst, Washington,
Wyoming, Augustaua, Butler, Brown,
Cornell, Dartmouth, De Pauw, Drake,
Maine, Hamline, Grinnell, Rutgers, Sim
moas, Oberlin, Pacific University and
Haverford, while those that, apparently
do not weight are: California, Kansas,
Idaho, Florida, North Dakota, Okla
homa, New Mexico, Ohio, South Caro
lina, South Dakota, Tennessee, Emory,
Texas, Virginia. West Virginia. Tulnno,
Notre Damp, North Carolina, Trinity,
Alabama, Cincinnati. Coucher, Temple,
liSfayette. Mills and Princeton.”
According to Miss Edgiugton’s report,
there are four methods of weighting
grades. .DePaow is typical of the first,
ruling that students must accumulate
j credit points with their credit hours.
Commonly, the best passing grade gives
three credit points and the lowest pass
ing grade none. The scholarship de
manded tileli depends upon the ratio of
Credit points to credit hours demanded.
Tlie commonest number of credit points
when the lowest passing grade grants
no credit points is the same as the num
ber of credit hours.
Washington is typical of the second
method, which states that a certain per
cent of the hours earned must be bet
ter than the lowest passing grade. A
common standard o nthis is 75 per cent.
The third method is in effect at Mis
souri. This system, in brief, is that
medium grade work earns a base num
ber of credits; better than medium gets
more hours credit; inferior work, even
though passing, discounts.
The fourth, which is used at Drake, is
a combination of the first and third,
awarding credit poiuts for superior
grades and subtracting poiuta for con
ditions and failures.
