Some with average SAT scores have relatively high, some relatively low GPAs. Despite these exceptions, our findings suggest a positive correlation berween SAT score and GPA, at lease in the group we have examined. Had we found just the reverse--had we found that for most scudents, GPA diminished when SAT scores increased, we would have uncovered a negative correlation between SAT score and GPA. Suppose instead we were to discover no regular variance betWeen SAT scores and GPAs; many students with relatively high SAT scores had average or low GPAs while many wich relacively low SAT scores had average or high GPAs.
