 The diagram on the right is a scatter plot with the horizontal axis representing the results of the entrance examination test (basic academic ability) and the vertical axis representing the GPA (academic achievement) at the end of one year. The data figure reveals that the higher the basic academic ability is, the higher the academic performance tends to be, but the variation is large, which is not necessarily according to the trend.
 Students were divided into 4 types for analysis. The results are as follows. Accordingly, for a certain grade, basic academic achievement and grade are both high (Type 1). The basic academic ability is low, but the grade is good (Type 2). Both are low (Type 3). The basic academic ability is high, but the grade is low (Type 4). Students were also asked about how much time they spent for some tasks. Results show that the time spent for part-time job was short (Type 2). For club activities and circles, the time spent was long (Type 3). There was not much time spent to prepare assignments and test preparation (Type 4). As for volunteering, students did not participate in volunteers or events. The results reveal that there is a need to change the support for content and method for learning according to the type of student.
