An Exploration of Grade Inflation and Some Related Factors in Higher Education
Carney, Paul; And Others
College and University, 53, 2, 217-30, W 78
Grade inflation at Wichita State University between 1965-1976 was investigated. Differential inflation patterns occurred in undergraduate and graduate levels. Possible contributing factors are: the increased use of criterion-referenced grading; the use of student evaluation in faculty salary, tenure, and promotion decisions, and expansion of experience-oriented courses.
