Inside Higher Ed reports on an … interesting(?) … provocative(?) … study about grading differences among professors who are registered with the Democratic party and those who are registered with the Republican party. An excerpt:
A forthcoming study finds that there may be notable differences. Democratic professors appear to be “more egalitarian” than their Republican counterparts when it comes to grading, meaning that more of the Democratic grades are in the middle. Republicans are more likely than Democrats to award very high grades and very low grades.
