Praise

Before your college spends thousands of dollars on the latest data system and tools, buy this book to find out how to use data you already have to better help your students succeed. It is packed with practical guidance based on the authors’ decades of experience helping colleges across the country improve student outcomes and institutional performance. — Davis Jenkins, senior research scholar, Community College Research Center, Teachers College, Columbia University

Phillips and Horowitz perform a great service, providing strategies and tools that help community college practitioners use data to discern where action is needed and whether that action makes a difference. The authors demonstrate an uncommonly nuanced understanding of issues on the ground as community colleges strive mightily to strengthen student success and equity in outcomes. — Kay McClenney, senior advisor to the President/CEO, American Association of Community Colleges

Brad C. Phillips and Jordan E. Horowitz highlight a critical point for college leaders: data without context does little to help us understand how to improve student outcomes.
