Inheriting Merit

Inheriting Merit

The SAT as an Institutionalized Measuring Apparatus for Social Mobility

(p.115) 4 Inheriting Merit

University of Minnesota Press

The fourth chapter diffractively analyzes the ontology of the SAT as a measuring apparatus and its intra-actions with conceptions of “meritocracy”; how the instrument is understood by test-takers and how that influences preparation (if any); and the intra-acting performative effect of enfolding historialities of the grandparents education with grandchild SAT performance.
