In recent years many colleges have re-examined the traditional role the scores on the Scholastic Aptitude Tests (SAT's) play in making decisions on which students to admit. Do SAT scores really help predict success in college? To investigate this question a group of 24 introductory statistics students supplied the data in this dataset showing their score on the Verbal and Math portions of the SAT as well as their current grade point average (GPA) on a 0.0-4.0 scale.
