In this 9 page paper there is a consideration of two types of test that are used to ascertain a candidates intellectual abilities. The first test is the more well known ACT Assessment, one of the two major educational assessment tests used in the United States, and the second in the lesser known American Registry of Technology ARRT Test. The first part of the paper introduces the reasons for a study into the possible correlation between the two results, and this is then looked at in m ore details by the second section, which is a literature review.
The literature is obtained from a wide range of sources, popular and academic press, as well as some statistics that have been provided directly by the student. These are then considered for the patterns over the years since 1995 and the ways in which thy may be seen to correlate directly or inversely with each other.
The final part of the paper is a suggestion of a methodology that could be used in order to undertake a more in-depth primary study of the subject. Methods suggested include the mathematical analysis of the results using regression and statistical analysis as well as the conducting of a study with specially chosen research groups.
