The College Board continues to examine the validity, fairness and effectiveness of the SAT across a national range of institutions and students.
Over 190 four-year colleges and universities have participated in this ongoing effort to research test validity and college success. Each participating institution receives:
- A stipend for the work involved in assembling and submitting a data file with particular student information related to college performance.
- Unique institutional admission (and placement, if desired) validity studies customized and designed to your specifications.
- A comprehensive data file returned with supplementary student-level variables from a College Board database.
- Copies of the National SAT Validity Study (.pdf/119KB) and other research studies that report data aggregated across institutions.
The study will focus on the first-time, first-year students who began at your institution in fall 2011. It has been designed to include those four-year institutions with at least 250 first-year students and more than 75 SAT takers.
The data files for the study are due by October 31, 2012.
