Don’t know if this is Un-American but it sure is foolish. The only way this could actually help anyone is if the SAT believes their test doesn’t tell colleges anything because it doesn’t matter how capable you are all you have to do is get into the college and you can graduate. Here is a great example of a company shooting themselves in the foot. Of course you have fools at college admission offices who will love this but then they really don’t care how many admitted actually graduate all they care about is quotas but the truth is the SAT has now become all but worthless. Where are the adults?
Why The SAT Adversity Score Is Un-American
The SAT has introduced a new “adversity score” with the stated intention of aiding students who have had more difficult upbringings.
The standardized test will use a grading scale of 1-100 to determine how much adversity a student has had to overcome, with one being the lowest, and 100 being the highest. However, some Americans are worried about the ultimate impact of the adversity score.
The Daily Caller’s Christianne Allen explains why she believes the new system is fundamentally “un-American” in the video above.
