Abstract

In 2004, Frey and Detterman developed regression equations to predict IQ based on SAT scores. There has been some debate over the equations’ applicability, with the conclusion being that the models need tested to assess their accuracy. Consequently, the purpose of this study is to cross-validate the regression equations.
