Review the artifacts above on student enrollments and student progress in the course. Then, provide a detailed description of all that this information tells you about the hypothetical course.

Teachers have to be vigilant in asserting an effort to make sure that student 's study habits do not weigh in when calculating a student 's grade. Students who are underserved need to have an opportunity based on their achievements rather than what statistical data predicts in terms of success.
