Was your "A" easy?

It seems grade inflation among college students is more rampant than one may suspect. How is it that our students are earning at higher levels and yet the outputs haven’t changed for years?

“The answer is that the giant proportion of A’s being doled out isn’t due to bright students – it’s all a result of a severe trend in grade inflation that has been increasing in scale over the last half-century. Whereas C’s accounted for the bulk of grades in the 1960s, they represent a meager 15% now. ”
