Investigated the relative importance society places on various cognitive skills using data from 1902-13 Ohio high school entrance examinations and Ohio 9th-grade proficiency tests of the late 1990s. The earlier exams demanded deep declarative knowledge of culturally valued information but only simple interrelations between facts. The modern exams expected understanding of complex interrelations between concepts but only superficial knowledge of culturally valued information. (SM)
