Dealing with D, U, and F Grades at the Learning Centered University: Resources from the Spring 2010 CIELO Panel Discussion. (Archived Event.)
- Huber, Bettina. "Characteristics of Undergraduate Courses with High Failure Rates." March 9, 2010. Office of Institutional Research, CSU Northridge. (This report is the shorter version and includes a pair of interesting figures at the end; they suggest that grades of D, U, and F appear differentially depending on type of course.)
- Huber, Bettina. "Characteristics of Undergraduate CSUN Courses with a High Proportion of Marginal or Failing Grades." April 2008. Office of Institutional Research, CSU Northridge. (This report is the longer version; it was not distributed to participants and does not contain the two figures that conclude the shorter version named just above.)
- Huber, Bettina. "CSUN’s Writing Proficiency Examination: Bump or Hurdle On the Road to Graduation?" February 2007. Accessed 3/9/2010. Office of Institutional Research, CSU Northridge. Includes pass rates 2001-2006. Available online from Institutional Research. Path: from Institutional Research, select "Special Reports." This report is the last one listed in the left column.
- "Report of the Committee on Grade Inflation, Spring 2006." Available in the Resources list for "Reflections on the Teaching of Freshmen with Dr. James E. Sefton." Offers an alternative perspective on the distribution of grades at CSU Northridge.
- Associate deans: these colleagues receive a grade distribution report from Institutional Research every semester. (That fact, of course, does not mean that they are obliged to distribute it. But they've got it.)
