Myth-Busting Higher Ed

Can a Wave of Analytics Shatter the Conventional Wisdom? Standardized tests predict college success. Low GPA students are the most at-risk. Full-time study is right for everyone. As higher education searches for solutions to its biggest challenges, leaders and policymakers are in search of universal truths of student success to apply in their context. But conventional wisdom can be dangerous. For too long, higher education has relied on cohort-level data and national best practices.
