Abstract : A percentile finder program, which functions with up to 248 scores, is presented for use with a desk-top calculator/computer. The program eliminates the inaccuracies obtained when using grouped data and will, it is hoped, serve to standardize the method of determinining percentiles. A flow diagram of the program and the user instructions are presented along with the actual program for use with the HP 9100B calculator. A sample problem is included for easy check out of the program. (Author)
