P621: Predictive effects of writing and verbal SAT scores on student success

Sabrina Giorgio, Katie Amaral (Pennsylvania State University – Berks, USA)

Many classes require prerequisites before a student is allowed to that take course.  These prerequisites and success in such classes are often determined from Quantitative SAT scores.  This study hopes to determine if Verbal or Writing SAT scores are better than quantitative scores.  By comparing students’ SAT scores to their actual grades, it can be determined if these tests are actually predictive of students’ success.  Also comparing students’ GPA, number of attempts, and number of withdraws in such a class, a more in depth analysis can occur.  Through these studies we hope to see a correlation between SAT scores and corresponding success in chemistry courses.
