The intended purpose of the professor evaluations was to assess the effectiveness of professors. This is valuable to a university and to its professors because it allows them to improve teaching methods, class engagements, and so on. However, the unintended consequence of the perceived grade inflation should give university administrators pause, but it should not necessarily lead to the termination of the evaluation process altogether. A university is first and foremost an institution of learning and it is important that it try and be as effective in that endeavor. Of course, a university wants its students to secure jobs upon graduation but who is to say that the termination of the evaluation program will leave students anymore prepared to take on the tasks of their future employment? There are several issues with the reasoning the university has put forth to justify the termination of the evaluation program. Namely, the university has not properly assessed the reason for the increase in grade averages, it has not taken into consideration other differences between itself and Alpha university that could have factored in its lower rate to graduate employment, and it is assuming that perceived grade inflation affects the decisions of employers. Each of these three issues will be examined in turn.

Experience is not so much about establishing rigid habits and attitudes as it is about developing skills and an understanding of how things work. The value of experience should not be underestimated. Imagining what is possible will not get you very far if you do not have the experience to carry out your vision.

Simply reducing expenditure does not guarantee the prevention of a deficit.
