Evidence on Grades and Grade Inflation at Ontario's Universities
Paul Anglin and
Canadian Public Policy, 2000, vol. 26, issue 3, 361-368
Using information on first-year university grades from across Ontario, we examine whether or not there has been grade inflation by discipline. In a survey of seven universities for the periods 1973-74 and 1993-94, we find significant grade inflation in various Arts and Science programs. The rate of inflation is not uniform. Some subjects, such as Mathematics experienced little or no change in average grades at most universities, while English and Biology experienced significant grade inflation.
