Grade Inflation

Razor's Edge

A is for Average

Don't take this entirely too seriously.  I saw the chart at Wm. Briggs, Statistician to the Stars! and followed it back to Gradeinflation.com but I did not dig into the data.

The average grades given for each year by a sample of 79 colleges over the past near-century. Data for the 1930s is sparse, being only about 8 colleges.  So it may also be that not all schools are present in all years, esp. in the early part of the graph.

Hmm.

The sharpest grade inflation by academicians seems to have cut off about the same time the draft did.

Must be a coincidence. Goodness knows, white Democrats wouldn't arrange for the majority of ill-paid and potentially lethal work, without consent and with the death penalty for trying to quit, to be done by black people.

That would be like selling them down the river.
