Correlation between Student Satisfaction and Grades: A Case of Mistaken Causation?
Howard, George S.; Maxwell, Scott E.
Journal of Educational Psychology, v72 n6 p810-20 Dec 1980

Both demonstrate that the relationship between grades and student satisfaction might be a result of important causal relationships among other variables rather than evidence of contamination due to grading leniency.
