a friend is interviewing at a historical reenactment costume shop and part
of the 'practical exam' is
hand grading.

are there any newsgroups or online resources for help on learning to hand
grade patterns?

Not that I know of, but Barbara Deckert's Sewing for Plus Sizes has
the rudiments of grading in it, and it's pretty common library fodder.
For a more thorough discussion, do a quick search over at amazon.com for
"pattern grading" in books... quite a few titles are available.

Any good pattern drafting book will show you how to grade.
