In the likelihood that AOP was found before participants rated their 7 out of 10, inflation of the cuff was

three steps: (a) examining the correlations among the variables, (b) assessing the tolerance values for the predictive variables, and (c) analyzing the variance inflation factor coefficients. All the data analyses were performed using the Statistical Package for Social Sciences (version 22.0 for Windows

, 2001 ). Due in part to growing criticisms of higher education, academic rigor has recently drawn great attention ( Asher, 2013 ; Collier, 2013 ; Desilver, 2017 ). The American higher education system is routinely attacked for its lack of challenging work, declining standards, and inflation of student

(except speed itself). Statistical significance was defined using a p value less than .05. We checked for collinearity by identifying variance inflation factors above four ( Pan & Jackson, 2008 ). Statistical analyses were performed with SAS 9.2 statistical package (SAS Institute Inc., Cary, NC). Table

Given these ‘cosmetic’ changes, some stakeholder groups began calling for the athletics programs to move up to Division II for football and Division

interrelationships between variables included in the final model with tolerance and variance inflation factor measures. Except for study site, all variables had tolerances and variance inflation factor measures close to 1, indicating the variables were orthogonal to each other (i.e., uncorrelated). For study site

’ Base Salaries The participants reported an average base salary of $65,866.27 ( SD  = $17,640.21). This average salary is notably higher than the $23,000.00 reported by Metzler and Freedman (1985) , which is $56,657.09 after adjusting for inflation.

independent variables as variance inflation factors ranged from 1.27 to 2.40. Concern over multicollinearity would be warranted if the largest variance inflation factor is greater than 10 or if the average variance inflation factor is substantially greater than one ( Field, 2013 ).

determine which path to take. Grade Inflation? Or More and Deeper Learning Experiences? In our collective experience in using this gameful strategy, we have observed an increase in our overall course grades. At first blush, this struck fear in our minds about introducing a source of grade inflation. However
