Peak Years and Influence

Spread the love

In an effort to determine the validity of my hypothesis about peak years I’ve scanned through high school data as I get my hands on it . . . turns out it is not so straight forward to get high schools to share their information. It has been even more difficult to get organizations like National Merit to share anything – despite being a member!

At this point I have one 20 year cycle for one high school. While the initial results are not spectacular, measuring the percentage of super stars in the class (total super stars divided by total class size) was more telling, but nothing outrageously off the charts. One class did do a bit better than the others . . . it was a pretty awesome class though I may be biased.

    Hi Kate,

    Now I’m going to have to go back and look at the prior posts for better understanding the context of this interesting graph.

    Also, I tried subscribing to your RSS feed both with YOUR Subscribe Here Orange RSS symbol as well as with the one in my (shhhhh) Firefox browser (I use both Firefox and IE for this class). Neither worked. :(( I’m sure you’re working on it. Just wanted to flag it to you while here.

    Happy Dating and Relationships,

    Hey that’s interesting! Personally I thought my forth form year was best socially, and third form best academically.
    Maybe hormonal changes have an impact.
