College board to add 'adversity score' to SAT
The nonprofit group that administers the SAT will assign an adversity score to each student who takes the test to reflect their social and economic backgrounds, according to a report from the Wall Street Journal . The number will be calculated using 15 factors, the Journal reported, including the crime rate and poverty levels of the student's high school and neighborhood. Colleges will be able to see the number when considering applicants, but students themselves won't be told their scores.
