In SAT Test, Standardized Testing

The non-profit College Board, which administers the SAT, is adding an ‘adversity score’ to test takers’ score reports. Quite simply, the College Board is concerned about how income inequality influences test results. The idea of the adversity score is to provide an ‘environmental context’ to students’ scores. Crime rates, poverty rates, housing values, median income, family income, and access to advanced course work will all factor into the adversity score.
