This study examines previous studies done by several student teams at Worcester Polytechnic Institute with regards to the relationship between PSA/SAT and MCAS scores and a few dimensions of the MBTI, a psychological survey, using the Worcester Public School System. This study suggests some positive correlation between MCAS and SAT along with some test biases. Hence, provided with more data from the WPS would lead to a direct answer of the test debate: "are the SAT and MCAS really two different tests?"
