SAT secretly injects race into exam with 'adversity score'
How colleges consider a student’s race and class in making admissions decisions is hotly contested. Many colleges, including Harvard University, say a diverse student body is part of the educational mission of a school. A lawsuit accusing Harvard of discriminating against Asian-American applicants by holding them to a higher standard is awaiting a judge’s ruling. Lawsuits charging unfair admission practices have also been filed against the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill and the University of California system.

“There are a number of amazing students who may have scored less [on the SAT] but have accomplished more,” said David Coleman, chief executive of the College Board. “We can’t sit on our hands and ignore the disparities of wealth reflected in the SAT.”

The SAT, which includes math and verbal sections and is still taken with No. 2 pencils, is facing challenges. Federal ...

Perpetual offense is seen as a human right. But in order that we prevent the stresses of offense, we must not discriminate on the basis of testing. Testing uncovers that some know, have learned, or understand more than others, which results an unequal scores. Inequality is not fair. We must include a fudge factor, to make sure our outcomes are equal. Better yet, let it be a step toward no testing at all.

Ultimately, the whole package of whom any of us truly is or isn't doesn't come from a test score, diploma, job, paygrade, or salary but our identity in Christ. We all have intrinsic worth just because we were formed in God's image. These things we pursue may be necessary steps to fulfill the plans the Lord has for our lives, but they are not ends unto themselves. And I have found that the Lord is more than capable to place each of us where He wants us, no matter how the world may score us.

Certainly your last sentence here points to the Christian's walk of faith, of which we need always to be reminded of.

I doubt any college worth its salt simply goes off an SAT score. Of course other factor are considered as part of the entrance package and resume. These scores are only one indicator that a prospective student may have the ability to perform well in school then represent the school well afterward.

So this story seems a little disingenuous and inflammatory.

Ultimately, the whole package of whom any of us truly is or isn't doesn't come from a test score, diploma, job, paygrade, or salary but our identity in Christ. We all have intrinsic worth just because we were formed in God's image. These things we pursue may be necessary steps to fulfill the plans the Lord has for our lives, but they are not ends unto themselves. And I have found that the Lord is more than capable to place each of us where He wants us, no matter how the world may score us.
