Society for A Return to Academic Standards


Provide information and support for a return to academic standards in higher education. The widespread use of the student evaluation of teaching (SET) data as a control device has caused grade inflation and course work devaluation. SFRTAS encourages research on faculty pander pollution, dysfunctional aspects of SETs, misuse of SET data by administrators, dishonesty of students on SETs, invalidity of SET information, denial of due process from use of SET, defamation, impression management, post-tenure reviews, disappearing tenure, and reasons for grade inflation
