Faculty Opinion on Grade Inflation: Contradictions About Its Cause.
McSpirit, Stephanie J.; Kopacz, Paula; Jones, Kirk E.; Chapman, Ann D.
College and University, v75 n3 p19-25 Win 2000
A faculty survey at a large open enrollment public university found most faculty felt grade inflation was a problem and one-third felt the primary cause was student evaluation of instruction. However, individual faculty did not feel that they themselves were influenced by student evaluations in grade assignment. Results did not differ by faculty rank or tenure status. (DB)
