In this paper, we show what we can learn from the CEBAF experiments on spin-structure functions, and the transition from the Drell-Hearn-Gerasimov sum rule in the real photon limit to the spin dependent sum rules in the deep inelastic scattering, and how the asymmetry $A_1(x,Q^2)$ approaches the scaling limit in the resonance region. The spin structure function in the resonance region alone can not determine the spin-dependent sum rule due to the kinematic restriction of the resonance region.

The result shows that there is a region where both contributions from the baryon resonances and the deep inelastic scattering are important, thus provides important information on the high twist effects on the spin dependent sum rule.
