    There were originally 10 potential factors that could affect student MEAP scores (Statistics+Assignment 795 Solution F[1].doc):

    teaching style

    extra curricular activities

    extra curricular activities * high * have extra curricular activities
    community involvement * high * have community involvement
    attendance * low * less than 5 absences


    You then examined four of those factors in order to find the optimum settings for each of those factors (Part+2+Deliverable+from+8+numbers+plugged+into+the+DOE+2003[1].doc).

    You found that the optimal settings were:

    D * attendance * - * less than 5 ...
