Replying to LO17449 --

I have recently joined this ListServ and have noticed that there is a
healthy discussion going on regarding grading/ranking. Last fall, I wrote
a short piece regarding grade inflation and other problems that stem from
grading titled "The Fine Art of Sorting Eggs." Rather than contribute
here, I will just pass along the URL for that work below:

Thanks for the opportunity to contribute.
