2. Mostly they're predictive of success in the first couple years of college.

Like all statistical tools, however, they don't predict an individual's success.

They work best in conjunction with high school GPAs, where they serve as a balance to grade inflation and outright falsification. Don't know how the revised tests will work.


I don't think SAT and ACT scores should be used to evaluate high schoolers in general, which is where I think they're heading.
