The effects of schooling on measured test scores are slightly larger for lower latent ability levels. We find that schooling increases the AFQT score on average between 2 and 4 percentage points, roughly twice as large as the effect claimed by Herrnstein and Murray () but in agreement with estimates produced by Neal and Johnson () and Cited by: Request PDF | The Effect of Schooling and Ability on Achievement Test Scores | This paper develops two methods for estimating the effect of schooling on achievement test scores .

The methods were applied to data on schooling and test scores. Estimates from the two methods are in close agreement.

This paper develops two methods for estimating the effect of schooling on achievement test scores that control for the endogeneity of schooling by postulating that both schooling and test scores are generated by a common unobserved latent ability. These methods are applied to data on schooling and test scores. ability levels get perfect scores) and endogeneity of schooling (which includes choice of date of entry into schooling as well as choice of nal schooling level). We nd that the eects of schooling on test scores for a given level of ability are approximately linear across schooling levels. Eects are slightly larger for those with lower ability.

[Karsten T Hansen; James J Heckman; Kathleen J Mullen; National Bureau of Economic Research.].   If a whole school or class does poorly, and those test results are publicized, it could negatively affect their image and could even deter funding from the school. As students reach the end of their K schooling, high test scores often mean more scholarships available.
