Perhaps students should not know their grades too accurately

If the purpose of grades is to make students work harder* then perhaps they should not know too exactly what their grade is at any moment in time. I have seen students who had high grades near the end of a course slack up a bit knowing that it wouldn’t be enough to change their final grade.
