Inflation of Grades
It is quite evident that most schools take enormous pride in the academic integrity of their students. However, researchers have indicated that the culture of grading has changed over the years. Students tend to focus too much on grades than on actually learning. Another trend that is student review of the courses they have taken. Since some professors have the notion that their jobs depend on these reviews, they tend to give students grades they probably didn't work hard enough for. I believe if professors focus on the grading system because they feel their job depends on it, students will focus on the same thing because they need their degree. This defeats the whole purpose of teaching and learning. Join the discussion below and share your thoughts on the inflation of grades.
