    Some Arkansas schools inflating grades

    Some Arkansas schools inflating grades - FOX16.com Little Rock, AR


    The Arkansas Department of Education (ADE) today released to members of the Arkansas General Assembly a report on grade inflation, which identified 58 high schools in the state as inflating 20 percent or more of its grades. . .

    The report, mandated by Act 2197 of 2005, compares the grades of public high school students taking Algebra I and Geometry during the 2000-2009 school year with their scores on the state’s 2009 End of Course exams for those courses. High schools for which 20 percent or more of students made an A or B in the course but failed to score proficient or advanced on the corresponding End of Course exams are identified as having grade inflation. . .
    Ah! Something we've all known for years - finaly coming to light and being reported on.

    It has happened before, but there is nothing to compare it to now.

    Wait, I'm part of all, and I never heard about this...unless you mean "all" as in "all of Arkansas".

    I wouldn't be surprised, however, if some of this type of thing is happening in other states...even my own.
