Overview
When deciding whether to admit an applicant, colleges take lots
of factors, such as grades, sports, activities, leadership positions,
awards, teacher recommendations, and test scores, into consideration.
Using SAT scores as a basis of whether to admit a student or
not has created some controversy. Among other things, people
question whether the SATs are fair and whether they predict college
performance.

This study examines the SAT and GPA information of 105 students
who graduated from a state university with a B.S. in computer
science. Using the grades and test scores from high school, can
you predict a student's college grades?

Questions to Answer Can
the math and verbal SAT scores be used to predict college GPA?
Are the high school and college GPAs related?

Design Issues The conclusions
from this study should not be generalized to students of other
majors.
