Tracking Student Success: Traditional/Non-Traditional Students

This article was posted was posted today in the Chronicle of Higher Education:

More Colleges Track Nontraditional Students’ Success – Students

Here’s my question – what about tracking the success of traditional students? Why is tracking non-traditional students the best thing since sliced bread? I understand that non-traditional students have a lower success rate, but it’s not like traditional students have it easy.

Also, while I’m ranting – what exactly is a “traditional student?” Maybe they should use the phrase “stereotypical student” instead. It’s my opinion that “traditional students” are a thing of the past.

Am I the only one bothered by this?
