Grades at Ivy League schools have risen across the board since the 1950s. Today, it is easiest to get a high GPA at Brown, while it is most difficult at Princeton (which, just this year, ended its grade deflation policy).

Are students getting smarter, or are standards slipping? The Economist argues that it is a little bit of both. Should anything be changed about the current grading system?

Sofia Perello Students are definitely smarter, and better prepared for college. I think that a "B" is fine as an average grade. However, many of these schools go to excessive lengths in coddling their students and making the average grade an A- or A, so that there really isn't much room to grow. What a joke!

Ben Glackin I agree! I'll be interested to see what happens at Princeton, which just ended its official grade deflation policy, in a few years. After Princeton took the step to end grade deflation, I doubt that other schools would step up and try to institute it for the first time.
