College Admissions in the Age of Covid


In 2020, the college admission landscape is rapidly changing, and standardized testing is no exception. Many wonder if the role of SAT and ACT in college admissions is shrinking, and if so, what parts of the college application are gaining in importance in return. In this presentation, Mindy Popp and Sarah Sexton will explore a few possible outcomes for testing in 2020 – from testing-as-usual to widespread cancellations – discuss what a “normal” testing timeline might look like, and evaluate the impact of widespread test-optional and test-blind policies.
