Marchant, Gregory J.; Paulson, Sharon E.
NASSP Bulletin, v85 n2 p62-74 Oct 2001
Differences among states' average SAT scores are almost entirely attributable to differences in percentage of test takers, parent education and income of test takers, and the high school rank and GPA of the test takers rather than to the quality of the states' education systems. Recommends changes in interpreting and reporting SAT scores. (Author/PKP)
