From the original twoquestion survey about undergraduate mathematics readiness, by Mark Connolly (University of Wisconsin?Madison) and AnneBarrie Hunter (University of Colorado Boulder):
"Roughly 60% of students who enter college with the goal of majoring in science, technology, engineering or math (STEM) end up graduating in a nonSTEM field. As part of a national fiveyear study of why undergraduates leave STEM majors, we are conducting a very short survey of STEM faculty and instructors.
"What we want to know is this: What level of math proficiency do STEM faculty consider a good indication that a student is likely to succeed in a STEM major?"
