This article reports an application of the control chart procedure for monitoring award of grades to
students by the teaching staff in a large university. The chart procedure signals the presence of special
cause variations if any in the award of grades. Implementation of the grade monitoring procedure saved
considerable time and effort while ensuring that the reported special cause situations are justified. The
mathematical derivations for the new control chart scheme are also presented.
