If an A is worth 4.0 Quality Points, shouldn't an A+ be worth more?

Although the "+" earns you more Quality Points when it is attached to a B, C, or D, the same is not true when it is given with an A.

When the +/- grading system was adopted at UM, the administration decided that it was not appropriate to award Quality Points in excess of 4.0.

The A+ is an honor given for exemplary performance; however, it is not worth more than an A.
