The University of California System suspends SAT, ACT admissions requirement

As the pandemic forced standardized tests like the SAT and ACT to be taken online from home, many colleges question their utility under these conditions. In addition to concerns about potential cheating, many also worried about inequities for students without broadband access at home and those with disabilities. In California, the public University of California system has decided to suspend its SAT and ACT mandate through 2024, with plans to eliminate standardized admissions exams in 2025. Over 1,200 institutions across the United States have also gone test-optional either before the pandemic or more recently given the new education landscape. This may represent a turning point for the role of standardized tests in college admissions. #covid-19 #education
