The SAT 'Adversity Score' Flip Flop
The Primary: The College Board abandoned its plan to provide an adversity score for the SAT following fierce backlash.
Who? What? Why?: The College Board first announced the score back in May. The metric, known as the "environmental context dashboard," was based on 15 factors from a student's social and economic background.
The Baseline: The College Board created the score out of income inequality concerns, according to the WSJ. Now, the organization will debut to a new score called "Landscape." The score will still factor in a student's background but it won't "combine the data points into a single score," per Axios.
