Critics Say Real Aim Of College Board Adversity Score Is Race-Based Discrimination

The College Board is evading questions about the secrecy of the “adversity score” it will now give to every student who takes the SAT, making it easier for critics to frame the move as an attempt to preempt a potential Supreme Court ruling on race-based admissions.

Students will not be able to see the score, and the College Board has provided very little information about how it is determined. The score aims to give a leg up to students from certain environments deemed disadvantageous by the College Board, but the board won’t say how the various factors that go into the score are weighted, or even what all of the factors are.
