Grade Inflation and University Admissions in Ontario: Separating Fact from Perception.
Casas, Francois R.; Meaghan, Diane E.
Canadian Journal of Higher Education, v25 n3 p49-70 1995
Ontario university admission data for 1983-93 were analyzed for evidence of high school grade inflation and grade-enhancement practices in response to increased competition for university admission. Results show only a moderate increase in entering grades, and suggest that grade inflation must be distinguished from changes reflecting demographic and budgetary factors such as increases in applicant pool and available spaces.
