This study examined the longitudinal effects of grade distribution and faculty evaluations in a large Computer Information System department. A significant relationship was identified between grade inflation and the letter grades issued by faculty over a 10-year period. Additionally significant was the effect of studentsí expectations of high grades and their evaluations of faculty performance.

Keywords: faculty evaluations, grade distribution, grade inflation, student expectations
