A study recently published in the American Economic Journal: Economic Policy found that retaking the SAT college admissions test resulted in higher test scores as well as higher four-year college enrollment. Retaking the SAT makes a student 13 percentage points more likely to enroll in a four-year college—with about half of this increase coming from students that otherwise would have enrolled in two-year colleges and the other half coming from students who otherwise would not have enrolled in any college. Importantly, low-income students who retake the SAT are about 30 percentage points more likely to enroll in a fouryear college and traditionally underrepresented students are 20 percentage points more likely to enroll in a four-year college. The researchers encourage more efforts to encourage high school students to take the SAT earlier, such as in 11th grade rather than 12th, so that there is more opportunity to retake the test. #olderyouth #racialequity #education
