Grade Inflation

B or even C performance can receive a grade of A when the scorer:

  • Doesn't know what A performance is.
  • Doesn't want to learn about A performance.
  • Doesn't believe grades are that important.
  • Has low expectations.
  • Is eager to avoid conflict.
  • Is trying to encourage the individual and believes a lower grade would be demoralizing.
  • Likes the individual and is inclined to approve of any work that is produced.
