Abstract

A random selection of AP high school students are tested on pattern recognition, as well as giving their following overall SAT score. The data is used to analyze the correlation between how well a student performs on standardized tests and their ability to recognize patterns within sequences. The data demonstrates a positive correlation, illustrating that students who did better on the SAT in both Critical Reading and Math, tended to do better in recognizing patterns within a text or a sequence. The results calculated prove to emphasize important significance, and a correlation is found between pattern recognition and SAT critical thinking. This proves that the brain, specifically the neocortex, is a crucial part in taking the SAT and analyzing patterns within it, and that the mind's ability to think critically is an important factor in standardized test taking.

The data is used to analyze the correlation between how well a student performs on standardized tests and their ability to recognize patterns within sequences. The data demonstrates a positive correlation, illustrating that students who did better on the SAT in both Critical Reading and Math, tended to do better in recognizing patterns within a text or a sequence. The results calculated prove to emphasize important significance, and a correlation is found between pattern recognition and SAT critical thinking. This proves that the brain, specifically the neocortex, is a crucial part in taking the SAT and analyzing patterns within it, and that the mind's ability to think critically is an important factor in standardized test taking.
