The Relationship of Religious Involvement to a Variety of Indicators of Cognitive Ability and Achievement in College Students.
Zern, David S.
Adolescence, v22 n88 p883-95 Win 1987
Undergraduates reported anonymously their degree of religiousness, their Scholastic Aptitude Test (SAT) scores, and their grade point averages (GPAs). Found religiousness negatively related to ability, and not related to achievement. The students' capacity to maximize their potential, measured by the standard score difference between GPA and SAT, revealed a strong positive connection with degree of religiousness. (Author/KS)
