      Colleges improve critical thinking only up to the 1250 score on the CLA+

      The Wall Street Journal published the CLA+ scores of 68 colleges. CLA+ is a test to measure the ability to think critically.  

      I graphed the score improvements as a function of the incoming class score.  It appears that colleges with low scoring incoming classes are able to increase their score but this increase disappears as the students get smarter.  

      At 1250 colleges no longer improve the score averages.
