Using grade data to show trends in universities

"Grand Rapids (Mich.) Press higher education reporter Brian McVicar used a decade’s worth of electronic grade reports to examine what classes at Grand Valley State University students struggle with the most, what academic areas students perform well in, and how grading at the university has changed over time."

"McVicar, an IRE CAR boot camp alum, used Microsoft Access to mine the grade data, finding which professors had a habit of handing out lots of A’s and which instructors are the toughest."
