In a study by Blue, O'Grady, Toro, and Newell (2002), they found that total SAT scores more strongly correlated with GPA at one year and at graduation from college than the subtest scores among their sample of early education majors. Despite the stronger relationship between the total SAT score and GPA (r=.439), the total score still only explains a little less than 20% of the variability in the GPA of the sample. This begs the question if the SAT is really a strong a predictor of college success as the College Board may make it seem.
