It is not necessary to always strike the first blow, to provide the first solution, or to reach a goal before anyone else does. In fact, it is sometimes vital to strike the last blow, to give the final answer, or to arrive after everyone else.“ -Jedi Master Wiwa

Assessing the Objective through Data Collection Each week the candidate’s participating Jedi Masters will fill out a form assessing the candidate’s performance.form Objectives will range from daily data recording to only recording data on specific days.
