Grade Inflation

Student Obsession with High Grades

  • PSI and PSII grade conversion table out of step with rest of university
    • students become obsessed grieving over lost marks rather than focused on learning
    • increased competitiveness -- reject group work and peer learning as threat to high grades
    Recommendation of Grading Task Force:
    revert to 2001 conversion
