Survey finds grade inflation continues to rise at four-year colleges, but not at community college

Survey finds grade inflation continues to rise at four-year colleges, but not at community college | TRENDS IN HIGHER EDUCATION | Scoop.it
The most common grade is A -- at all kinds of colleges. But while grade point averages are increasing at four-year institutions, that's not the case at community colleges.

Amanda Eve Avila's curator insight, April 5, 8:12 AM
In the article, “Grade Inflation, Higher and Higher” I learned how the grade inflation has increased in the past decades. Grades have been for the most part at a consistent rate but the increase in A’s gone up tremendously. In the graphs shown it shows the years with the grades. You could clearly see the increase of A’s in each chart. This was interesting to me because I never thought about grade inflation. This article made me realize how grade inflation is happening and will most likely increase in the next years. The graphs were helpful to understand the grade inflation throughout the years. This article was interesting and I am glad I got the opportunity to read it.

Amanda Eve Avila's curator insight, March 13, 9:55 PM
I was interested in this article throughout the whole time I was reading. I agreed with most the points that author Jeffrey J. Selingo addressed in his article about rising tuition in the past decade. I think it is an awful thing that now high school graduates can not attend college due to higher education being pricey. I hope that some how college education will decrease in expenses but I know that it will only rise. It sucks how that college education is now a privilege rather than a right of passage. College prices are just going to rise but family income is decreasing. Parents want the best for the children but could only provide so much when it comes to paying for college. I don't know what will happen with the expenses of tuition but I hope it could be lowered. Everyone should be able to get a college education and have an equal opportunity.
Jesus Sandoval's curator insight, March 15, 12:00 AM
In the article The biggest problem facing higher education, in one chart, Jeffrey J. Selingo talks about how across the country the average price of a public four-year college in today’s dollars has increased by 13 percent since 2010, according to the College Board. This does only affect the students eligibility to continue on wit his/her education, but it affects the institution as well. Selingo tells how on his trip around North Carolina in 2000, he noticed that tuition fees for a year were around two-thousand dollars average. Today, those same universities charge about $8,500 in tuition and fees. There were similarities between the rising tuition fees and the declining income within families. I believe that this issue is important because a student’s education is at stake. The audience Selingo is aiming at are those students/families who can relate to this issue all throughout the country. I wonder is these financial problems with college tuition might possibly change as a result of whoever takes the presidency this year. Bernie Sanders for example, wants to make the United State’s high education system completely free. If this does indeed end up happening, at least it would help the families with low income take weight off their shoulders.
