Short version: it's analogous to "average" or "good" from the old grading system. Long version: the new grading system reinvented the wheel, and...)
What is “misinterpreting the grades you’re giving out?” I’ll take “Ways To Hose Up Your Students’ NSSes” for $500, Alex.

There is no “average” in the “new” system (that’s been around for 15 years). There’s “the minimum score you have to meet by checkpoints in the syllabus.” And, as always, if you just meet the minimum, you’ve got little room for error.

Sorry; I went through in a time when there were IPs who would still go, under the new system, “well I’ll just average you out . . .” :)
No worries. Both systems had in common:

Good students generally got good grades and bad ones bad,

Some IPs graded by the book, some didn't make the effort to go by the book, and others bent the rulebook a bit.

Both systems could be used, misused, or manipulated by the chain of command to handle the truly bad students to attrite them, give them another chance, or to pass them along as the leadership saw fit.

This is what really drove my "Triggered" meme. People who didn't put the effort in to learn the training standards frustrated me. If you (rhetorical you) graded the way you graded for everyone, fine, but at least understand what the one grade that's defined incredibly well means (ie, CTS). Having graded under both systems, and finishing up with the BA/A/AA system, I've grown to really appreciate what MPTS brought to the table for both IP and stud, assuming the IP had an open mind to learn it.

Both systems could be used, misused, or manipulated...
Or just completely disregarded so that an IP could get to the CCX destination bar as early as possible. Training was just a nice to have, should it have fit into the schedule.

I was genuinely concientious in my grading as an IP at HT-18. And as the Stan O had many a conversation with the Santa Clause and the Hard Ass on the importance of accurate grading as a tool for production quality.
