The New York Times ran a report about a study where the lead author is Ellen Greenberger, called Self-Entitled College Students: Contributions of Personality, Parenting, and Motivational Factors.
The article focus on how students' opinion, differ with that of their teachers when grading tests. University of Maryland's Professor, Marshall Grossman stresses:
- “I tell my classes that if they just do what they are supposed to do and meet the standard requirements, that they will earn a C,” he said. “That is the default grade. They see the default grade as an A.”
A recent study by researchers at the University of California, Irvine, found that a third of students surveyed said that they expected B’s just for attending lectures, and 40 percent said they deserved a B for completing the required reading.
