I have to study a different way. It usually doesn't matter too much to me because I know I'll pull off a good grade in the class and work my way back up because I always do.

Thank you for the feedback and thoughts. I'll think about a way to try to get to looking for any "leaks".

re: In Higher Education, Fewer Women Graduate To CIO
One number that puzzles me is the "CIO interest" figure holding steady, even as the number of tech leaders rises. Is the CIO role in higher ed changing in such a way that it is becoming less appealing to women? Is this a matter of timing? I.E., some women (and men) delay their final charge to become CIO to coincide with family demands. But then they do make that charge. Perhaps some of both. Let's hear from some female IT leaders in higher ed on this topic.

re: In Higher Education, Fewer Women Graduate To CIO
As an outsider stats junkie/back seat driver, I'm wondering if you've looked at how long the organizational path from new hire /starter to CIO is, and how long people are spending per rung. 26% to 21% is a big drop -- figured on its true base it's more like 20%, i.e. one in five of the female CIO positions has been switched to male in the last five years. But the "retire in the next 10" statistic is also revealing; people don't get to be CIO until they're a good deal closer to retirement than to startup. And the most common cause of a precipitate decline in plans to retire, IIRC, is people retiring (a person who retires is no longer counted as "planning to") So if 15 years ago or so there was a big surge in numbers of CIOs, but not in number of people sliding into the just-below slot, then as that earlier wave retires you're going to see some drifting down from the old achievements. Is there a leak in the pipeline somewhere below CIO, or was there a surge caused by a temporary now-closed fast track?

Just some more angles to try. As you rightly say, the data looks both concerning and puzzling.
