SAT changes scoring to try to even field for students
The College Board announced this week that it's been testing a tool that would give millions of students who take the SAT a score measuring their economic hardships and other disadvantages.
The dashboard "shines a light on students who have demonstrated remarkable resourcefulness to overcome challenges and achieve more with less," said David Coleman, chief executive of the College Board, which administers the SAT.
The scores won't be revealed to SAT test-takers, but schools will see the numbers when reviewing college applications. Fifty colleges piloted the program last year, and the College Board plans to expand it this year.
