An infographic about grade inflation

Found here. This was compiled with reference to U.S. universities so some of what's here isn't quite relevant to Canadian universities, but some of it hits too close to home to be comfortable.

As of September 1st I have tenure ... and will have something more to say on the topic of grade inflation after that. But for the time being, I can happily say that A grades consistently comprise less than ten to fifteen percent of my final sheets, and I can count the number of A+'s I've given out in my six years at MUN on one and a half hands.

Grade inflation is a problem, but in my experience it happens in other grade brackets than the A range.
