Analysis of SCAT V and Q %ile Scores Made by Maui Community College Students Enrolled in Fall Semester 1967.
Having the SCAT V and Q percentile scores for 308 of the 504 students enrolled at Maui Community College (Hawaii) in the 1967 fall semester, a statistical test was made to determine whether or not a significant percentage of the students had scored at or below the 50th percentile. By categorizing students according to their areas of study--liberal arts, vocational (including business, building construction, automotive technology, metal and machine technology, apparel design), and unclassified--it was found that in every case the mean percentile Q-score exceeded the V-score by at least 12 percentile points. Moreover it was shown that the students were in need of improvement in verbal skills. No significant differences were found for the vocational students insofar as quantitative skills were concerned. Charts indicating V and Q percentiles comprise the final two pages of the report. (DG)
