Everyone can make all the assumptions they want about the problems and solutions but until all of the data about how each student is doing is available to instructors and administrators to assist in truly meaningful ways, everything is just a guess.

Corporations and governments are showing that data is the key to success. I hope our Montana educational institutions will finally embrace full modern data analysis for the sake of our future leaders and the hope of Montana.
