The SAT Puzzle
By Bryan Caplan
In the comments, Joel cleverly turns a puzzling fact around on me:
Colleges care about applicants’ SAT scores. Employers don’t. What’s
going on? I’m tempted to just repeat my adage that, “For-profits are
crazy,” but even for-profit colleges care somewhat about SAT scores.
I’d say that this is an isolated puzzle in the for-profit world, not a systematic pattern of craziness. But Joel still poses a good question. Is it just fear of “SATs=IQ tests” lawsuits? Or what?
