Grade Distribution Study

Dear colleague,

The Council of Chairs at California State University, Northridge is pleased to share with you the results of its second study on grade distribution at the university. The study is designed to engage faculty in continuing efforts to improve the quality of instruction and the value of degree programs at our university. The study consists of the text of the report, as well as University, College, and Department Level Distributions data. The Council of Chairs wishes to encourage periodic department-level conversations with faculty members on this issue. The Council is especially grateful to the Office of Institutional Resources and Planning for its assistance in conducting this study. The Council is also grateful to the original authors of this study: Professor James Sefton, Department of History, Professor Shirley Svorny, Chair, Department of Economics, and Professor Peter Nwosu, Chair, Department of Communication Studies, for their leadership on this issue and to its most recent iteration with the help of Julie Sonntag.
