College Board to assign SAT ‘adversity score’: Report College Board to assign SAT ‘adversity score’: ReportThe College Board plans to give an adversity score to every student text. Esha Lawn Cemetery has been looking into this. If I’m poor from the wrong part of town. I have what you want to Define that. Do I get extra points you get fewer points so that it’s a scale. This comes from the Wall Street Journal and we have reached out to the College Board, who will not affirm or deny the story, but they are in charge of the SAT and they do apparently have tested that, and this year, a scale of 1 to 10 50th Average, if your score – and they look at 15 different items, not race. So your background, where you live your in your family’s income, the high school that you went to paint this picture of where you come from, if you go below 50, that’s hardship! If you go above 50 you’re privileged and they’re, trying to figure out a way that the schools can use this to boost your status because sometimes Tesoro Resort One S or how much you really overcome because of income inequality, that’s what it boils down to. But this is a very sticky area for many schools because it goes under the category of affirmative action in a sentence morning. Trying to get answers on this. Did you say: is this about race by testing and adversity score? Is it’s not just academic achievement? It’S background. Will be factored into your SAT score? That’S up a type of affirmative action. I think to help poor people. It is a way of getting a trace without really getting out race, but I want you to consider something else. There are there’s a lawsuit against Harvard and it’s by asian-americans, and they say since we typically test well. These are the numbers and he’s come from the Wall Street Journal, so you can put them up on the screen right now. If you look at average, SAT scores. Asian-Americans score 100 points higher than white score 177 points higher than blacks and 133 Point tires. Hispanic students in the Asian students are saying you’re, making us it’s harder for us to get in because you’re holding us to a higher standard. So there’s all sorts of storylines emerging around this adversity. How to understand this extra credit, I guess is what I’m saying when you factor in the College admission scandal it. If you look at first generation students going to Yale France and saved in the past several years, almost doubled that number and for low-income groups to if you put those two categories together, it’s 20 % of their class. Is I hate using that expression, but the bottom line? Is it’s not just pure academica treatment? The college admissions offices probably have a little bit of a headache right now, background FBN’s Lauren Simonetti on reports the College Board will begin assigning an ‘adversity score’ to the SAT.
