I hate these kind of "quota" grades. There should be certain criteria for obtaining each grade but if 80% of the class meets those for an A then by golly 80% of them should get an A.
Grade quotas vary on how they are used. We have an unofficial quota of 1/3rd As and Bs, 1/3rd Cs, and 1/3rd Ds and Fs. Sometimes there is not one A in the class. Sometimes there is not one F in the class. One time, it was a small class of 15 and there were 14 Cs and 1 B.
