A study commissioned by the College Board has found "no large-scale, substantial grade inflation" in mathematics scores between 1982 and 1992. It is impossible to tell if the courses are easier or harder than they used to be, researchers say. Another study indicates that there is no way to assess whether grades are inflated and suggests that the student being graded and the teacher's educational philosophy play a bigger role in grade inflation.
