My niece said that she deserved an A but the teacher gave her a B+.
This make me wonder if teachers ever make mistakes.

Well we are only human,we can make mistakes in grading when it comes to questions and points. I have marked something wrong when it should have been marked right, things like that. That's why I have students check their papers when I go over the answers. When it comes to a writing assignment, maybe the teacher just didn't feel it deserved an A. Did she write any comments on the paper? Perhaps your DD could ask what would have gotten her that A.

Well OP there is always room for improvement too. Sometimes I will not give a student an E on their report card in certain subjects, I'll go with an S. Yes that student is doing VERY WELL, but they can do even better. Perhaps this teacher just isn't one who is easy on handing out As. A B+ is still VERY GOOD. :) :)

ANON48 MOOD has nothing to do with it. Many teachers will not give an A if there is ROOM FOR IMPROVEMENT, as the other poster said. An A is the highest grade to be earned, and many may hold their students up to higher standards to earn that grade.
