dc.description.abstractThis paper studies the effect of SAT scores on college graduation. Due to college admissions placing heavy emphasis on these scores, high schools and families may channel resources towards SAT preparation, rather than other learning objectives. Researchers have also found that SAT scores may not be as important in predicting college success as previously believed. Further, emphasis on SAT tests may negatively affect women, people of color, and low income students in their pursuit of higher education. To test the effect of SAT scores on college success, we use data on SAT scores and college graduation for 2,535 US college students. We find that, while SAT scores are statistically significant predictors of college graduation, highschool grades may be more predictive. We study the effect of SAT scores on college graduation. We use data on SAT scores and college graduation from 2,535 US college students.en_US
