The SAT and ACT
While they are not I.Q. tests, the SAT and ACT are used by admissions personel to predict potential for college success. The SAT tests basic to intermediate math, reading comprehension, and grammar skills. In addition to these skills, the ACT also tests science reasoning ability. The SAT has two sections, Math and Critical Reading and Writing, each scored on a 200-800 scale, with 500 roughly the 50th percentile. The ACT has four sections- English, Math, Reading, and Science Reasoning- each scored on a 1-36 point scale, with 21 roughly the 50th percentile. More than 2 million students take the SAT or ACT each year, making them the two of the most widely administered standardized tests in the world.
As a rule of thumb, SAT and ACT scores account four about 1/3 to 1/2 of the admissions decision, with the balance of the decision based on a student's high school record. Low scores on the SAT or ACT may eliminate an otherwise qualified student from consideration. High scores can make up for shortcomings in other areas.
