Results and Conclusions

Standard Deviation Analysis:

Those skills / competencies that had a standard deviation greater than +1 are those tasks that are most widely used and show that our students are clearly doing in the workplace those tasks that they have been trained for in the Chemical Technology program. Table III lists in an abbreviated form those skills and competencies that are more than one positive standard deviation from the mean.
