Investigated whether students report professors are excellent teachers if little studying is required to receive high grades. Evaluations from 1,939 students in 75 first-year classes found that when grades varied markedly across sections of the same course, professors assigning the highest grades for the least studying received the highest evaluation. Previous correlational studies underestimated the effect of grading leniency. (Author/MSE)
