Success in Officers Candidate School (OCS) occurs at the same rate regardless of whether the candidates received a mental aptitude qualification waiver based upon their score on the electronics portion of the Armed Services Vocational Aptitude Battery (ASVAB). However, these rates do change with race and time; and the result is an apparent contradiction because the macro rates (those rates computed overall without discriminating race and time) exhibit different success rates depending upon the presence of a waiver or not. The data are studied to expose the contradiction and develop sharper models.
