Fighting Grade Inflation: A Misguided Effort?
Basinger, David
College Teaching, v45 n3 p88-91 Sum 1997
Inflated college grades reflect an underlying problem: inappropriate content, modes of presentation, and modes of assessment. Many popular assumptions about how to address the question of standards (modifying transcripts, freeing teachers from external pressure, using grades as an indicator of quality) emphasize grades rather than standards. College teachers should not fight grade inflation per se, but continue to address standards. (MSE)
