THIS IS AN EXCEPTION.
DO YOU WANT TO GET YOUR OPINON ON THE VALIDITY OF SAT AS A COLLEGE PREDICTOR HEARD? DO YOU THINK THE SAT WORKS AS A RACIAL AND SOCIOECONOMIC BARRIER THAT DENIES MINORITIES AND THOSE OF LOW ECONOMIC STATUS ACCESS TO QUALITY, HIGHER EDUCATION AND CONSEQUENTLY, PREVENTS THEIR UPWARD ECONOMIC MOBILITY? OR DO YOU THINK THE STATISTICS ARE COMPLETELY BLOWN OUT OF PROPORTION, AND THAT THE SAT DOES WORK TO PREDICT STANDARD COLLEGE SCHOLASTIC PERFORMANCE?
DO YOU TAKE A STANCE OTHER THAN THESE MENTIONED? DO YOU WANT TO SHARE YOUR SAT-TEST TAKING EXPERIENCE AND/OR SCORE, OR THAT OF SOMEONE YOU KNOW?
If so, please reply to this entry and I will either e-mail or post here a couple of interview questions that you can answer at your leisure-- you can be as brief or detailed as you want, but the questions are meant to generate discussion and will be somewhat open-ended.
I'm doing this for a documented anthropological study of the SAT for the University of California, Berkeley, and I need as much input as possible from all of you guys. Please state whether or not you would like to remain anonymous since the data collected will be used (and at times quoted directly) in my research. Thanks!
This journal is being turned into a friends only journal; id est, if you are not on my friends list you will not be able to read any of my entries (except for this one). I have no problem with adding any of you secret avid readers out there (but I doubt there are any)-- just add me to your friends list and I'll be sure to add you back.
You might be wondering why I'm doing this now... I'm just neurotic like that... I've been wanting to do it for some time, but I just finally got the initative tonight.
