“Based on the data currently collected and the analyses I have conducted on that data, I believe that colleges and universities can confidently use CLT scores for admissions decisions, and that the CLT will perform just as well as the SAT or ACT. CLT scores are highly correlated with both SAT and ACT scores, and correlate remarkably well with freshman GPA. Both of these are indicators that the CLT possesses high validity as well as reliability.”

The kind of students who take the CLT are exactly the kind of students Grove City is most interested in recruiting. They are students that come to campus fully prepared, they lead class discussions, and participate in the life of the college.”
