The grade of students’ achievements, with all its weaknesses, is a form of feedback through which the students are informed about the effects of the process of learning and the results of the effort they put. It is assumed that this sort of feedback has a motivational impact on their future work in the teaching process. In the educational process, the teacher should constantly work on the development of the students’ confidence and the development of the motive for achievement, because it is a very important factor that enables proper experience of the feedback on the students’ individual achievements. The motive for achievement is an important factor in the student’ performance. Taking into account the impact the grade has not only on the students, but on the parents and other entities interested in the students’ achievements too, the paper examines the motivational function of the grade through surveys and informal interviews conducted with students and teachers, i.e. an examination of how much the grade as a number, obtained in the teaching process as feedback, influences the students’ motivation to learn.
