Republican and Democrat Grading

Via Volokh. Inside Higher Ed reports that Republican professors and Democrat professors have different patterns of grading. Republicans give more high and low grades, Democrats give more in the middle. There has been some discussion at Volokh whether this follows academic disciplines or whether the study successfully took that into account

Good reporting would have made that clear. It may have something to do with the disciplines, as I've read the liberal arts skew heavily liberal/progressive/Democrat.
