Berkeley Students in Library in 1960
The Project Talent study produced a wealth of information about a generation of Americans that came of age at a transformative time in American history. Data from the study has informed over 450 government reports, academic articles, and scholarly books.
Project Talent was instrumental in revealing the factors, both within and beyond the school system, that influence students' educational attainment. It also transformed the field of aptitude testing and led to increased understanding of the connections between certain identifiable skills and career success later in life. In addition, Project Talent data has contributed to scholarship on subjects ranging from the changing role of women in American society to the experiences of veterans of the Vietnam War
