To that end, the College Board has continued to collect college outcome data to evaluate the relationship between SAT® scores and college success. This report provides updated validity evidence for using the SAT to predict first-year college grade point average (FYGPA) for the 2011 cohort. Appended are: (1) Institutions Providing First-Year Outcomes for the 2011 Cohort; (2) Raw Correlations of SAT and SHGPA with FYGPA by Institutional Characteristics; and (3) Raw Correlation of SAT and HSGPA with FYGPA by Subgroups.
