Do you think SAT scores really define how smart you are ? ?

    No, and that's not what they test either.  SAT and ACT tests are designed to see how well a high school student is able to use critical thinking, language skills, and subject matter knowledge to answer questions.  The assumption is that students who do well on these tests are ready for the academic rigors of university courses.  Students who don't do well (regardless of IQ or other things), probably will not be as successful in a university.

    SAT scores in my opinion, are rating a whole lot more than you think. It's not just randomly invoked. Teachers want to use measuring tools to gage who in fact could become the next genius millionaire test subject specimen

    They are a very good indicator of what you know, and that translates to smart.

    Absolutely not. That just determines how well you can obey the system, and how much study information you currently have memorized.

    SAT and ACT test the knowledge you have and how well you can use that knowledge as well as your time management skills.

    No, but they define how well you study and learn, and that's what schools are looking for.

    No I don't. They define your ability to take test only!
