3 Measures of ability: SATV, SATQ, ACT

Description

Self reported scores on the SAT Verbal, SAT Quantitative and ACT were collected as part of the Synthetic Aperture Personality Assessment (SAPA) web based personality assessment project. Age, gender, and education are also reported. The data from 700 subjects are included here as a demonstration set for correlation and analysis.

Usage

data(sat.act)

Format

A data frame with 700 observations on the following 6 variables.

gender

males = 1, females = 2

education

self reported education 1 = high school ... 5 = graduate work

age

age

ACT

ACT composite scores may range from 1 - 36. National norms have a mean of 20.

SATV

SAT Verbal scores may range from 200 - 800.

SATQ

SAT Quantitative scores may range from 200 - 800

Details

hese items were collected as part of the SAPA project (http://sapa-project.org)to develop online measures of ability (Revelle, Wilt and Rosenthal, 2009). The score means are higher than national norms suggesting both self selection for people taking on line personality and ability tests and a self reporting bias in scores.
