Studying Grade Inflation

USA Today reports that a study done by Michael Hurwitz, an employee of College Board — the company that gives the SAT — and Jason Lee, shared some suspicious findings recently. The study found that while the number of A’s that high school students are receiving is increasing, the average score on the SAT is going down, leaving the question: What does an A really mean?

The research also incorporated another study that found A’s in college are now three times more prevalent than they were in 1960.
