Texas Tech Is Investigating Professor’s Grade-Tampering Claim

The Chronicle of Higher Education
July 31st, 2015



Texas Tech University is investigating a professor’s allegation that grades he had recorded were later altered, allowing students who had done poorly in his class to earn M.B.A.s.
The Daily Toreador, Texas Tech’s student newspaper, reports that Jay Conover, the professor, first suspected something was amiss when he saw a handful of students’ names on the list to graduate.
“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 M.B.A.s?’” he told the newspaper, adding that the students had not done poorly because they were “dumb” but “because they were taking too much.”
