Where All Grades Are Above Average

Date: January 28, 2003
Author: Prof. Stuart Rojstaczer
QUOTE: In the absence of fair grading, our success in providing this country with a truly educated public is diminished.

ABSTRACT: According to a Duke University professor, college
transcripts contain more A's and B's now than in the
past. Many professors opt not to give a grade of C or
lower, even if it is deserved, because professors
don't want to be seen (or to see themselves) as low quality instructors.
