“When it comes to grading, Republican and Democratic professors at one unnamed elite university put their ideologies into practice, a new study finds: Republicans welcomed inequality, handing out more very high and very low grades, and Democrats’ grades grouped more tightly around the average.
Republicans also gave black students lower grades than their colleagues. In both cases, the researchers stressed, there was no way to know which approach better reflected students’ performance.”
This is from an article in the Wall Street Journal discussing a forthcoming article by Talia Bar and Asaf Zussman in the American Economic Journal: Applied Economics.
Let’s see, Talia Bar is at Cornell, and Asaf Zussman is at the Hebrew University of Jerusalem. The paper asks about American political affiliations. I really wonder which unnamed elite university that could be!
One a related note, I know one of the Republicans at Cornell. I wonder who the other one is.
