Issues in College Admissions Testing.
Noble, Julie P.; Camara, Wayne J.
College admissions tests provide a standardized and objective measure of student achievement and generalized skills. Unlike high school grades or rank, admission tests are a common measure for comparing students who have attended different high schools, completed different courses, received different grades in courses taught by different teachers, and had access to different opportunities and experiences both in and out of school. This chapter provides a general overview of the three undergraduate admissions tests--the ACT Assessment, SAT I, and SAT II. Various influences on admissions tests scores and testing accommodations for student with disabilities are also discussed. (Contains 25 references and 1 table.) (GCP)
