There are a small number of schools (about 15% of all schools in our database) that have experienced only modest increases in GPAs over the last 15 to 20 years, but most of them have average GPAs that already exceed . There are no schools in our dataset that have been untouched by rising grades over the last 50 years. Grades went up significantly at all schools in our database in both the Vietnam era and the first half of the consumer era. That said, a few schools have had modest to negligible recent grade rises (and rarely, modest drops in grades) and have relatively low GPAs, as will be discussed in the next section.
LOVE this site. I have been using it for a few years now. I was super upset when the site closed down for a while. So yeah, I have 2 suggestions. The first one isn’t really a big deal, but still thought I’d mention it: the default letter grading is weird. Before, it was perfect. A 90 was an A, and an 80 was a B and so on. Now there is A+at 90, and an A- at 80, and so on as default. It’s no big deal. One can easily change it, but I’d still like to bring it up. Second, I would LOVE it if one was able to add decimal places to both the grades and the percentages of grade. For ex, a class w only 3 tests, all weighted equally, each are worth %, and not the 33% that I’m able to enter. An on a test is different than an 84, or an 85, and each are different in 33% of the grade average, or 34% of the grade average. Whether you change these things or not, thanks for making this site. It has saved me from countless hours of worrying.
