The most common grade now earned in college (40%+) is an A! Has the quality of college students gotten that much better over the years?

In recent years, the number of A's earned in college has jumped considerably and the trend is still upward.  Students just keep getting better and better.  Are they really?

Definitely inflation, but I understand the method behind the madness.  It's a combination of: 1) Increased access to information about professors and 2) Increased competition for grad-school seats.  

 


It's definitely grade inflation.
