The Scholastic Aptitude Test: A Critical Appraisal.
Slack, Warner V.; Porter, Douglas
Harvard Educational Review, v50 n2 p154-75 May 1980
Contrary to findings of the Educational Testing Service and the College Board, the authors contend that coaching can effectively help raise student scores on the Scholastic Aptitude Test (SAT). They argue that the SAT is not in fact a measure of "aptitude" and that high school grades and achievement tests are better predictors of academic performance. (SK)
