Default Say goodbye to the SATs.

The SAT test scores that colleges use to screen applicants are being changed.

They will now include an Adversity Score. The worse your zip code, the fact you have 1 or 0 parents, the free lunch program at your HS, your lack of family income, etc., the less points (less is better) you get on the AS.

Colleges can now add this AS to the rest of the SATs and whatever other means they use for choosing applicants.

Sounds like you don't want to come from a 2 parent home in a well off neighborhood.

The original purpose of the SATs was to ignore a student's background and test their knowledge. Not anymore.

Surprised it doesn't have a "race" checkbox too.

If you're a white male, you're automatically disqualified.

I would be behind this if it removed the question of race and sex from it, but included those other factors.

Do I get extra points if I'm transgendered and gay?

I would totally get having an Adversity Score on a student loan/grant/etc. But now we're handicapping college entrance exams? Isn't the point of these to test if the applicant will be able to be successful in college? So now you're going to have some idiot get into college with a $100k loan that will never be able to pay it back. Genius!

so your parents worked their ass off to live in a decent neighborhood with good public schools to help their children get into a good college. But that's not how this works you racist bigot. That's -400 oppression points.

This is supposed to be a test to determine base line skills, not demographics. As previously said in the thread that could be split off at universities. If Harvard is any indication it's a racist practice as well. Blind admission should be the way to go tbh. Gonna probably suck if you're Asian.

i mean, colleges already have looked at this info to decide on admissions for at least a decade- cuz they did when i was applying.

had a Filipino friend with a shit gpa, no extracurriculars, horseshit act get into a school my other white/male friends didn't with upper 3.x gpa's, high 20/low 30 acts.




of course doesn't mean i agree with it.

This is just another way we're trying to turn equal opportunity to equal outcome.

That’s what they’re using the info for. The measured adversity score doesn’t affect the SAT test number.

https://www.nytimes.com/2019/05/16/us/sat-score.html

“The rating will not affect students’ test scores, and will be reported only to college admissions officials as part of a larger package of data on each test taker.”

Reminds me of the old adage about socialism.

"You went to medical school and became a doctor? Sorry, we don't need doctors right now, we need coal miners. Here is your miners hat and pickaxe, now go down in the mine and get to work."

IIRC, in the Navy we were promoted by our numbers only, they didn't know our name, race, religion etc.

If they needed 37 E-5's that cycle, the top 37 E-4's were promoted.
Your supervisor didn't get to screw over the guy that rubbed him the wrong way.
All he could do was give a bad review, tests, awards, commendations etc etc were added up and your score was your score.
