The Relation of SAT Scores to Birth Order and Number of Siblings.
Pellicano, Stephanie
The purpose of this study was to determine if verbal scores on the "Scholastic Aptitude Test" (SAT) were related to student birth order and number of siblings in the family. The SAT scores of 71 randomly chosen students of the 1978 graduating class of a suburban high school were classified by family size and class rank of student. Each group of scores was then compared to the other groups to determine the relationship of the SAT score to family size and birth order. The results appear to support the hypothesis that there is no significant difference in the SAT scores across the groups. These findings would seem to indicate that hope for higher SAT scores by 1980 due to decreases in family size is unwarranted. (Author/RL)
