I don't know if anyone has seen these documents before. If this is old news or irrelevant lock it up. Spare me the internet bickering.

I found this to be a pretty good read. Not a whole lot more than we know already, still interesting though.

Notable from the report- "applicants who achieve a qualifying minimum score are
divided into two groups: those scoring 85 and above(termed “well qualified”) and those scoring from 70 to84.9 (termed “qualified”). Those in the “well-qualified” group will be offered employment before anyone in the “qualified” group. AT-SAT data in this paper are therefore reported according to these categories."

This one is about the reweighing of the different sections of the test

For the reweighing... Oh how I don't miss statistics... If I payed more attention in class, it would make more sense. I think you may need a degree in it to make sense.

So based on the revised weighting, the mean score for All Groups of AT-SAT test takers is only 77.86? With everyone who reported their score on the forum here, that seems awfully low to be inline. However, I guess you could assume that the average forum user is more tech savvy? :) Btw, I didn't get chance to read all of it, just scanned mostly and paid more attention to the tables.

There is a selection bias in the average score reported on these forums. Most people don't like to brag about their 65s and the average poster would be more motivated to get a good score compared to the average AT-SAT testtaker.
