Case Predicting Performance

The pressure of the SAT exam is very great, and many students suffer from test anxiety. The results, therefore, may not truly reflect what a student knows. There is evidence that coaching improves scores by between 40 and 1 50 points. Test scores, therefore, may adversely affect the chances of acceptance for students who cannot afford the $600 or $700 to take test-coaching courses. Are Stats valid, or do they discriminate against minorities, the poor, and those who have had limited access to cultural growth experiences?
Alternatives: 1- Keep student selection criteria and its weights as it is for now “including SAT at 0%” 2- Increase SAT weight 3- Decrease SAT weight to 20% and add to the criteria intelligent test with weight of Alternatives Evaluation: 1 . Keep student selection criteria and its weights as it is for now “including SAT at 40%” Positives; l. It will give Alex more time to do further study and benchmark with similar colleges. Ii.

SAT will remain part of the selection criteria it. Intelligent test is used by multimillion companies to choose their future employees so by using it in the student selection criteria it will improve the college graduates in finding their Jobs.

Negative; I. What if a student “poor” excels in intelligent test but didn’t do so well in SAT score? It will remain a dilemma to accept him in Ale’s highly selective college. Recommendation:- First alternative is for me is the best… Although it’s scores less than second alternative in the evaluation yet it will allow Alex to have enough time to gain more practical experience and benchmark with other similar organization to improve her decision making process. Also in the second alternative Alex concerns about SAT score will not be eliminated or solved! Prepared by: Amman Taft
