Committee Updates

August 2020

The task force issued its report on standardized testing in August 2020. The report is entitled "Ad Hoc Committee on Leadership in Ensuring All Students Have Access to Higher Education: The Role of Standardized Testing in the Time of COVID-19 and Beyond."

The report is a much-needed call on colleges and universities to examine their ACT and SAT policies and practices. It examines the inequities associated with standardized testing for college-bound students and calls for solutions that can help bring about needed change to the admission process.
