Before you see the faculty graduate formation, you can see its grades. Since grades are used for selection they are very important instruments and can have serious consequences for students. Consequently, the validity of grades is an important aspect to consider, and questions concerning the functions of grades can certainly be viewed from a validity perspective. Therefore arises as question of whether the grades indeed reflect graduated student training and especially its ability to succeed against technical problems that will be posed in front of by his professional life. To be useful they must be credible notes and somewhat standardized.

Analyzes carried out in several brainstorming and brainwriting sessions with students belonging to the first percentiles of their series showed that they realize the inefficiency of grades they receive.
