This project was the continuation of the work of eight WPI research teams to study the effect of psychological type on SAT score. The prior researcher's data collection efforts and key findings were summarized. Their data sets on the Worcester Public Schools graduating classes of 1996-1999 were merged together and supplemented with additional SAT/PSAT scores and transcripts data so that a single, comprehensive data set would be available for future teams. Finally, this data set was analyzed to study how psychological type affects students' attempts to increase their SAT score through practice and retesting.
