College Board
The purpose of the study is to examine the differential validity and prediction of the SAT using a nationally representative sample of first-year college students admitted with the revised version of the SAT. The findings demonstrate that there are similar patterns of differential validity and prediction by gender, race/ethnicity, and best language subgroups on the revised SAT compared with previous research on older versions of the test. The following are appended: (1) Uncorrected Correlations between SAT Scores and HSGPA and First-Year GPA by Subgroups; (2) Correlation of SAT Scores and HSGPA with FYGPA for American Indian Students at Different Minimum Cut Points; and (3) Average Overprediction (-) and Underprediction (+) of FYGPA for SAT Scores and HSGPA by Subgroups (Unstandardized Residuals).
