The goal of this study was to try to replicate the "B" Term Plunge" of the SP type learners (on the MBTI) with the data set on the WPI Class of 2005. It was evident in the Class of 2002 and 2003 data sets. Secondarily we planned to cross validate self reported high school grade data (CIRP) with actual transcripts. The plan was to see if the plunge occurred and use CIRP survey data to try to understand why it occurs and then put it in the context of HS preparation for college. Unfortunately, neither the grade or CIRP data requested for the study arrived in time. We attempted to do the same analysis on the Class of 2001 data set.
