College Board, Slides presented at the Annual Meeting of the American Educational Research Association (AERA) (San Diego, CA, Apr 15, 2009)
Presented at the national conference for AERA (American Educational Research Association) in April 2009. The large variability of SAT taker population across states makes state-by-state comparisons of the SAT scores challenging. Using a mixture modeling approach, therefore, the current study presents a method of identifying subpopulations in terms of SAT scores while taking into account the percentage of SAT takers so that state SAT scores within a subpopulation can be properly compared.
