rationale for examining sat
Rationale: For Examining SAT
  • SAT (or the ACT) is a standardized test that students have take to enter college.
  • Therefore, I believe that showing the SAT scores will tell me who enters college
  • And, I believe that college education also correlates to later income.
  • What do you know about the SAT?
slide3
In the next slides you will see different the SAT scores for multiple years according to ethnicity and then for income.
interpretation of the graph
Interpretation of the Graph
  • Regardless of the year, the white students outperform all other minorities, and the lowest is African. I am a little surprised that Asian American scored lower (but I helped that happen since I had very bad SAT scores!). This is a hint to the next slide: However, since SAT correlate so high with income, I wonder if there are greater number or African Americans living in poverty then other ethnic groups. And, I wonder the same for the other minority groups...If I were to look at the % of ethnicity in poverty! Is SAT mainly a poverty problem - not an ethnic!?
interpretation of income and sat
Interpretation of Income and SAT
  • Regardless of the year the SAT was given, there is a positive relationship between the amount of income a parent makes, and the child's SAT score (Although, there was a slight increase in the lower income bracket for 2003-2004). As a educator, this doesn't surprise me. I believe that students who are raised with more money, usually have greater educational advantages. Most of the time, wealth means greater world experience, greater vocabulary, more tools such as technology (computer access) and even just dictionaries. IF this is the case, I wonder how we can give the same opportunities to all students - regardless of parent wealth!
conclusion is education in crisis
Conclusion – Is education in crisis?
  • I think we as educators, and society have a much bigger battle then talked about on the news!
  • I think that we want to increase the number of educated persons, which may mean increasing the number of students going to college, and thereby take the SAT. However, the increasing scores correlate with increasing income.
  • Educators DO NOT increase income!
  • Education is not the crisis – society is!
  • Do you agree or disagree?
