The purpose of this project is to analyze Worcester Polytechnic Institute students' class of 2001-2003 freshman grade performance patterns and see if freshman lead indicators of four-year on time graduation for four types of learners can be found in the data available by the end of freshman year. The degree to which SAT scores' predict freshman year success and four year success for each type of learner is also assessed. Learning style categories are based on the students' MBTI (Myers-Briggs Type Indicator) data collected during freshman orientation. Errors in the data set assembled by a prior IQP student on the class of 2003 MBTI data were found and fixed. Hence, the pattern of results for class of 2001-2002 replicate, but not as previously reported by earlier studies.
