SAT to add "adversity score" to promote Identity Politics

The new metric piles onto an already controversial debate over whether race and class should be considered in college admission. 

The College Board will soon include adversity scores for any student who takes the college placement SAT test in an effort to better understand students’ social and economic standings, the Wall Street Journal reports.

Why it matters: The new metric piles onto an already controversial debate over whether race and class should be considered in college admission. 

Higher education has been thrust under the microscope more than ever. A nationwide college admissions scandal uncovered bribes and phony SAT scores paid for by wealthy parents. An ongoing lawsuit accuses Harvard University of unfavorable admissions practices toward Asian-Americans. 

How it works: The SAT’s new metric will take into account 15 factors that evaluate family income, social environments and educational disparities. 

  • 50 colleges used the score last year as a test. It will be applied to 150 institutions in the fall and be more broadly adopted the following year.
  • Students won’t be told the scores, but colleges will see the numbers when reviewing their applications.
