T scores & a Multivariate Analysis

#1
4 tests were administered to 2 different groups. The scales of measurement for the tests were different, so the raw scores were converted to z-scores.

I then converted these z-scores to T scores (capital "T").

Is it valid to analyze these T scores using a General Linear Model / Multivariate Analysis in SPSS, such that the Dependent Measures are the T scores from the 4 tests, and the Fixed Factors are GROUP and AGE??

I appreciate any help with this. Is there another was to compare the performance on these 4 tests between groups?

Thank you so much!

Dear,
I am solving the problem of Partial least Square Regression problem for the Human Whole blood for 7 varients( Glucose, Urea, Cholestrol etc). I have spectra for 288 samples having different concentration of above 7 varients. The data points we are generating for each sample are dependent on the wavelength having range from 2.0 - 2.4 nm with the interval of 0.005 nm. Hence for each sample we have total 101 datapoints.
My lookout is to compute unknown sample varient concentrations for the spectra of the sample.

I am using Partial Least Square Regression to build the model ( I have been user of the following portal for computation of Partial Least
Square Algorithm for my studies.
http://www.statsoft.com/textbook/stpls.html#basic

I am solving the multivarient system and am using SIMPLE algorithm as
mentioned at

http://www.statsoft.com/textbook/stpls.html#SIMPLS
)
equation Y=XB+ E there
mentioned in the SIMPLE algorithm.

Further kindly infome me how to compute the "X" unknown matrix for the known "Y"
.
I tried solving the equation in matlab like follows.
I computed the matrix 'B' load vectors from the known spectra template
B=W*Q'

This is my unkown sample spectra,
