Yeah, I had no idea what it meant to control for a variable, thank you so much rambozo for explaining that to me. The criteria that I stated were not controls in the study.
As to "the person clearly didn't understand what was being claimed here"
How would you know whether or not I know what is being claimed? The claim is obvious as it's the center of our current discussion. Quit it with the hyperbole and false arrogance.
Your first statement and the "can't compare groups with similar grades" statement suggest you have no clue what multivariate analysis involves. Just stop before you make yourself look worse.
I'll leave it alone as well.
