    You would think that you were smarter right?

    Thats basically what it all boils down to.
    No. School exams have nothing to do with intelligence.

    The SAT exams, on the other hand, do.

    O.O

    -SAT A
    -SAT B

    You think that you are smarter than your friend because you got an A, correct?

    IQ test are not a one time thing either, i took the SAT 2 years ago, do i know more than i did then, yes. Finding one's IQ is simply a matter of self-esteem(or lack of), unless you are required to take it(english).

    As said before by countless amounts of psychologists and administrators, SAT tests barely test knowledge.
    The vocabulary section is pretty much the only section that does test knowledge.

    The rest requires thinking and applying.

    -.-

    The SAT isn't a logic-type test lol.

    Math=knowlege
    Vocab=knowledge

    -the SAT is used for College entry, not your IQ lulz. To top it off, your SAT math scores completely outrank your Critical thinking and Vocab in importance.

    Anyway, I have taken the SATs 3 times. None of the questions in the test were "culturally bias".
    I don't follow politics.

    This has nothing to do with race. What we are trying to do is measure the individual's innate ability to process information and respond. The closest that we can apply this measure to a written test is with the use of shapes and sequences.

    I have seen this form of question on many occasions. It has nothing to do with true intelligence.

    As for the correlation that the OP referred to, correlation studies are highly flawed. Simply because two variables express a positive correlation does not mean that the rise in one figure is caused by the rise in the other figure. [Example] The murder rate in the Summer increases, as does the sale of ice creams. A positive correlation. Does this mean that the increase in murders is caused by the increase in the sale of ice creams? We cannot simply apply a cause and effect relationship with correlations.
    The rifle is the first weapon you learn how to use, because it lets you keep your distance from the client. The closer you get to being a pro, the closer you can get to the client. The knife, for example, is the last thing you learn.

    Why is it called the "SAT Reasoning test" then?

    Face it, it does test logic.

    Oh it has everything to do with race.
    It's a chain.

    Liberals control this country. They know racial intelligence differs. But in order to maintain power, they'll feed the average American bull shit so they can keep their support.
    Liberals have always claimed the SATs aren't important, because the test revealed the intellectual inferiority of most minorities.
    Of course, anything that blacks do poorly on must be culturally bias.

    This is why so many people don't think SATs have anything to do with IQ.

    That question was from the old SATs.
    The new ones (1996-present) don't have anything to do with knowledge.
    It's more based on critical thinking.

    Your claim makes no sense.

    How can the reading section of the test be based on knowledge?
    The questions ask you for main ideas and inference, meaning you had to *think*.

    If the passages of the test were repeated in every single exam, then your claim would be substantiated.

    What about the math sections?
    You need no higher than 7th grade math formulas to do any of the problems.
    Problem is that even people in AB & BC calculus can't get perfect scores. So your whole argument about knowledge falls apart.
    The ones who get perfect scores are usually the slackers.

    itsa monkey.

    I see some cultural bias, but political liberals controlling things is a bit out there.


    anyway, SAT isn't for IQ as previously stated, its for College entry.

    Colleges want people who do well in school and who have high IQ.

    They just don't want to admit it.

    Yeehaw
    I'm not going to bother feeding the troll, nor will I care to teamview "your" account, because it's not really hard to fake. Considering you were the guy who asked if PayPal had commas in their digits in your balance sheet then go around and edit your HTML to say a couple million and try to play it off as real, I wouldn't really care or trust something, much less anything coming from you.

    Those tests are stupid anyways, on the math section of the ACT I scored really high, I was expecting near perfect score, but I got just really high. I took it again without a calculator and scored exactly the same (and I had to approximate some answers because I forgot to bring a non TI-89), so how can I get the exact same score when I didn't have a calculator with me and had to approximate answers? It has mostly to do with luck. And like Iverson said, it's stupid. There is no correlation between IQ and College scores. IQ is a pretty flawed system as it is. Unless you are trying to get a scholarship or into MIT (which is stupid unless you are pursuing a masters or PhD), you are just wasting your time and money. I didn't really care about scoring high in the ACT, I already scored what I needed to get into any college I wanted, anything over that is overkill.
