Will the Next Stage of Data Driven Instruction Make Smarter Students?

IBM makes tech predictions every year.  They are right about half the time, a pretty good average for anyone.  This year the predictions caught my eye because one is about education. Not only are they predicting a change in education but attempting to affect it as well. IBM is testing the effect of tracking everything a student does on graduation rates.  Included in the study are attendance, test scores, how they interact with electronic content, and what they are being taught in the classroom.
