What is the grading system and how are the students assessed? 

The US follows a standard based grading system for the students in the elementary school. Students are graded as per exceeding, meeting or falling below the standard.
The advantage is that students are not compared against each other, and all have the opportunity to pass the standard.

However, there is also a rank-based grading system wherein students are ranked and grades are assigned according to the rank, placing them in direct competition with one another.
