2) Professor goes to commencement, gets a surprise:
“I went to graduation and I saw that several people’s names were on the graduation list that had been in my class,” he said. “I recognized a lot of names, but I also recognized names of some who didn’t do well in my class and I wondered, ‘How did they get MBAs?’”3) Professor checks grades, suspicions are confirmed.
One student earned a "D" but it was changed to a "B", another earned a "C" and it was changed to an "A". Another earned a "D" and it was changed to an "A," and one earned a "D" and it was changed to a "B".
4) Professor reports the irregularity. He is immediately transferred out of the business school, where he has taught for 37 years, to the math department. Apparently he is now "not a good fit for the college."
Now, all of these things might be a series of unfortunate coincidences, and maybe this has nothing to do with the fact that you tend to get what you measure.
Still, I can't wait until we start evaluating hospitals the same way.
