More Grade Inflation at Harvard (and elsewhere)



Courtesy of our next door neighbor Ralph Luker at Cliopatria comes the unsurprising news that despite much negative publicity last year grade inflation continues to rise at Harvard.

Grade inflation is not only an Ivy League problem, however. As our study for the Alabama Scholars Association has found, it is rampant at the University of Alabama where, for example, A's constitute about 55 percent of the grades in entry level Education courses and nearly 80 percent in entry-level Women's Studies courses.
