The fraction of A-range grades in the fall 2011 through spring 2014 three-year period increased to 43 percent from 40 percent in fall 2008 through spring 2011, the Faculty Committee on Grading announced at the first faculty meeting of the academic year on Monday. The 43 percent of A-range grades in the most recent three-year period is still lower than the 47 percent of A-range grades reported in 2001-04, the period right before the current grade deflation policy was enacted. These data were released in light of a separate grade deflation policy report that was released in August.
Recommendations from the grading policy report released on Tuesday could go into place as early as the upcoming fall term, said University President Christopher Eisgruber ’83, who is supportive of bringing end to grade deflation. “I think it’s really important that Princeton be known for the quality of its teaching rather than for the severity of its curve,” Eisgruber said. Thereport, written by an ad hoc committee commissioned by Eisgruber to examine the grading policy implemented in 2005, urged that the quota for A-range grades of 35 percent be dropped and that emphasis be placed on providing meaningful feedback to students. Eisgruber explained that he will ask the Faculty Committee on Examinations and Standing to discuss the report at its first meeting in September.

Flo Rida, a hip-hop artist, performed at the 25th reunion tent in Whitman College on Thursday night, a concert that was initially restricted to Class of 1989 guests but was eventually opened to all Reunions attendees.

Multiple members of the Class of 1989 told The Daily Princetonian earlier on Thursday evening that Flo Rida was expected to perform. The concert took place on early in the Reunions schedule, on a day when most attendees have yet to arrive on campus.Entertainment chair for the 25th reunion Stephen Consentino ’89 explained that this was due to the artist's schedule, who was unavailable any other day. One of Flo Rida’s most famous songs is “Low,” featuring T-Pain, which became popular around 2008.
