The coronavirus pandemic has forced schools to shut their doors and forced The College Board, the organization that administers the SAT to cancel and postpone testing dates.
In response, many colleges announced they would temporarily not require students to submit standardized test scores, among them highly selective schools such as Williams College and CalTech as well as massive state university programs such as The University of California college system, which enrolls some 280,000 college students each year.

According to a report from nonprofit organization FairTest: the National Center for Fair and Open Testing, 85% of the 100 top liberal arts colleges ranked by U.S. News & World Report will be test-optional for 2021 admissions.

Ivy League colleges are also joining the temporary test-optional trend. So far, seven out of eight have made announcements about such adjustments which means that as of Wednesday, Princeton University is the only remaining Ivy League school that will continue to require the SAT or the ACT next year.
Some students will still be required to submit test scores; the Ivy League, which is the name of the athletic conference these prestigious schools are a part of, maintains that student-athletes should complete standardized testing and many transfer students will still be expected to have taken such exams as well.
Here’s how the schools say they’ll evaluate admissions for the next year:
Brown University

Brown University​

Brown University released the following statement on June 12th:

“For first-year applicants in the 2020-21 admission cycle, Brown is now test-optional. This change is for the 2020-21 academic year only.
Students who are unable to submit SAT or ACT scores this year due to COVID-19 will not be disadvantaged in our admission process. If this describes your situation, please know that your application will receive full consideration by our admission committee. We will continue to review test scores that are submitted, and will also bear in mind that those who do submit scores may not have been able to take the SAT or ACT more than once. There will be an opportunity within the Common Application to share with us how you may have been affected by the events of this year, including telling us how your testing plans were disrupted.
It is important to note that, while standardized testing has long been a component of our holistic admission process, it has always been one among many components that we consider. Testing can be informative, but is only one part of a much larger and more important story about an individual applicant. The SAT or ACT, when submitted, will continue to be considered in the context of all the other information we have about a candidate, and is one of multiple ways in which students may show preparedness for the rigors of Brown. For students who are not able to submit scores this year, we will look to other components of the application, from course grades and curricular rigor to insight from counselors and teachers, to assess academic preparation.
This year has been one of upheaval and uncertainty, and we hope that adopting a test-optional policy for the 2020-21 admission cycle will better enable students to prioritize their health and well-being, and that of their families, as the summer and fall continue to unfold. While the applications that students submit this year will undoubtedly look different than in years past, we remain committed to a thoughtful and thorough holistic review process.”

Columbia University​

Columbia University released the following statement on June 11th:
“Due to ongoing standardized testing disruptions associated with the COVID-19 pandemic, Columbia is adopting a one year test-optional policy for first-year applicants to Columbia College or Columbia Engineering for the fall of 2021.
If students have completed testing and can submit SAT or ACT results, we encourage them to do so as we believe this information can be a valuable addition in our review process. However, testing is no longer a required component for the first-year 2020-2021 application cycle, and students who are unable or choose not to submit test scores will not be disadvantaged. We will continue to evaluate all submitted information within the holistic and contextual review process that considers individual circumstances shaping each applicant’s journey. The rigor of a student’s curriculum, their academic achievement, and their demonstrated intellectual curiosity will remain central to our review.
For students able or who choose to submit testing, Columbia’s testing policies remain the same. We accept SAT and ACT scores through November test dates for Early Decision applicants and scores through January for Regular Decision applicants. We will continue to accept self-reported scores and only require official testing for enrolling students. If you were able to take an exam more than once, you will be evaluated on the highest score you received in any individual section of that test. Please note that we are aware that many students, if able to test, could only take a test once. As noted above, that context will be taken into consideration should scores be provided. Standardized testing is only one component in a highly contextualized, multi-layered holistic review.”

Cornell University​

Cornell University released the following statement on April 22nd:
“The SARS-COV-2 pandemic emergency has led to many SAT and ACT administration cancellations. Due to this extraordinary circumstance, students seeking to enroll at Cornell University beginning in August 2021 can submit their applications without including the results from ACT or SAT exams. This will be true for both the Early Decision and Regular Decision rounds of review.
For those who have taken, or who can take, ACT and SAT exams
Cornell overall has not planned to adopt a test-optional admission policy permanently. As appears to be true at test-optional colleges and universities, we anticipate that many students who will have had reasonable and uninterrupted opportunities to take the ACT and/or SAT during 2020 administrations will continue to submit results, and those results will continue to demonstrate preparation for college-level work.
In Cornell’s review during the 2020-2021 application cycle, results from the ACT or SAT might still be a meaningful differentiator in particular for students who:

  • live near or attend a school that will be open, and where testing will be offered, or who live near a testing center that will be offering more testing seats or dates than they did in 2019; and
  • have not experienced lost income for one or more of their household providers or other significant new hardships and losses during 2020.
We can’t pre-define in absolute, comprehensive terms what economic or personal disruptions will look like. We don’t plan to require any students to justify their reasons for not submitting test results, though we will hope to partner with applicants and their advocates throughout the reading period in order to understand each applicant’s circumstances.
Students who have taken a test, or even more than one test, but would still prefer not to submit those results, can make that choice.
For those who can’t plan for, take, and submit exams
Cornell readers will consider with increased scrutiny their other application documents, looking for different evidence of excellent academic preparation, including:

  • challenging courses and excellent grades in each secondary school (high school) context. Note: there will be no negative interpretation for schools and students who have had only pass/fail or similar grading options during this current term;
  • evidence of commitment and effort to pursuing other challenging learning experiences;
  • results from other kinds of secondary, college-preparatory, and university-qualifying testing where available and verifiable;
  • care, craft, and authenticity in their writing submissions;
  • and wherever practical and available, details, insight, and analysis from secondary school counselors and teachers.
Applicants with no test results might more often be asked after review has begun for additional evidence of continuing preparation, including grade reports from current senior year enrollment when that can be made available in time for Cornell admission review.”
Dartmouth College

Dartmouth College​

Dartmouth College’s Dean of Admissions released the following statement on June 3rd:
“Effective immediately, Dartmouth College is enacting a one-year suspension of our standardized testing requirement for candidates seeking undergraduate admission. Dartmouth College is now test-optional for the Class of 2025.
In normal circumstances, standardized testing offers useful statistical context for the holistic evaluation of a student’s academic record as well as our essential assessment of preparation for the curriculum we offer. But this moment is not normal. As I noted in an earlier blog post, we promised to adapt our admissions requirements as the situation evolved and as warranted. The situation has evolved, and a policy pause is now warranted. However, our commitment to academic excellence and intellectual curiosity has not changed.
“Optional” is not a trick word. It is not a wink that signals a continued institutional preference for the upcoming admissions cycle. This is not a moment for euphemisms or gimmicks; there should be no parsing of intent with this amended testing policy. It is a clear response to an unprecedented moment that requires admission officers to reimagine some of the elements we have historically required as we reassure anxious students about their upcoming applications. Worries about oversubscribed test sites, anxiety regarding limited registration access and the incongruity of test prep during a quarantine can be set aside.
At Dartmouth, we will welcome any testing element a student chooses to share—the SAT, the ACT, a subject test, an AP score—or none at all. Our admission committee will review each candidacy without second-guessing the omission or presence of a testing element. As with the other optional components of the application—an alumni interview, a peer recommendation—the decision to share testing as an element of holistic review is purely an individual one. For students who wish to submit an SAT or ACT score, we recommend just one test session.
We strongly advise students to focus on the many holistic elements of the application that showcase academic excellence in a more qualitative way. In addition, Dartmouth will not report a testing profile for the Class of 2025 to the campus or national media nor will we share one in our publications or on our website. If the goal is to “reduce anxiety for students,” let’s reduce the spotlight on testing during these uncertain times. Test prep and multiple test sessions are not good uses of a student’s time, money, or emotional energy during an ongoing public health crisis.”

Harvard University

Harvard University​

Harvard University released the following statement on June 15th:
“Harvard College will allow students to apply for admission to the Class of 2025 without requiring standardized test scores. We understand that the COVID-19 pandemic has created insurmountable challenges in scheduling tests for all students, particularly those from modest economic backgrounds, and we believe this temporary change addresses these challenges.
Consistent with Harvard’s whole-person admissions process, standardized tests are only one factor among many. Accomplishments in and out of the classroom during the high school years – including community involvement, employment, and help given to students’ families are considered as part of our process. However, students who find themselves limited in the activities they can pursue due to the current coronavirus outbreak will not be disadvantaged as a result, nor will students who are only able to present pass/fail grades or other similar marks on their transcripts this spring.
Students who do not submit standardized testing this coming year will not be disadvantaged in the application process. Their applications will be considered on the basis of what they have presented, and they are encouraged to send whatever materials they believe would convey their accomplishments in secondary school and their promise for the future.”

University of Pennsylvania campus

University of Pennsylvania​

The University of Pennsylvania released the following statement on June 4th:
“The College Board recently announced that an at-home version of the SAT will not be offered as planned. Meanwhile, the capacity for in-person examinations has been severely limited due to COVID-19 considerations. These combined factors will prevent thousands of students from taking the SAT exam. The scale of these challenges is unprecedented. With this in mind, Penn Admissions will not require the SAT or ACT for the 2020-21 first-year and transfer admissions cycles. Applicants who do not submit SAT or ACT scores will not be at a disadvantage in the admissions process. For international students attending schools where English is not the language of instruction, we continue to require either the TOEFL or IELTS exam. Students who are able to take the SAT or ACT and wish to report them may continue with that plan.
Penn Admissions acknowledges the benefits and limitations built into standardized tests. Beyond the admissions process, test results help institutions guide and support enrolling students. We also know that a single examination does not capture the ability, preparation, and potential of all students in an equal way. For this reason, standardized testing has always been only one part of a larger review process that considers many factors, including the rigor of coursework and performance in these courses. Penn Admissions will continue to review students, on an individual basis, consistent with our belief in a comprehensive whole-person review process.”

Yale University​

Yale University released the following statement on June 12th:
“In response to the widespread disruptions caused by the COVID-19 pandemic, the Yale Office of Undergraduate Admissions will temporarily suspend its requirement that first-year applicants submit results from the ACT or SAT.
The change will be in effect during the 2020-2021 admissions cycle for applicants to the Class of 2025. Applicants who are unable to complete an exam or who choose not to report exam scores will not be disadvantaged in the selection process. As announced previously, SAT Subject Tests will not be considered during the 2020-2021 admissions cycle.
This one-year policy change reflects the extraordinary circumstances that students, families, and educators are currently facing. This policy applies only to students graduating from secondary school in the 2020-2021 academic year. Transfer applicants and students who intend to apply for admission to enroll in fall 2022 or later should plan to complete the ACT or SAT by the appropriate deadlines.
The Office of Undergraduate Admissions remains committed to a whole-person review process that relies on experienced application readers and a committee of admissions officers, faculty, and deans to consider every applicant’s unique context and circumstances. This commitment extends to Yale’s evaluation of a student’s test scores, when available. For applicants who choose to send scores, the Admissions Committee will continue to view the scores within the context of the student’s entire file; to focus on the highest individual section scores for students who have completed the exam more than once; to accept self-reported scores for the purposes of evaluation; and to take context into account if a student has had limited or no opportunities to complete an exam.
Whether an applicant chooses to report standardized test results or not, the committee will pay close attention to a student’s high school transcript, letters of recommendation, and demonstrated academic drive and commitment. As always, the committee will make decisions with the best information available and with as much flexibility as possible to consider applicants from all backgrounds and experiences.
Students who have completed AP Exams, IB Exams, or AICE Exams prior to submitting their applications may opt to self-report scores in the application, but there is no expectation that students enrolled in academic-year courses associated with any of these tests complete exams in spring or summer 2020.”

没仔细看CFC对录取标准中取消SAT/ACT的看法,个人认为美国最高质量的名校都是私立大学,他们有更多自主权,他们的选择应当是有必要的考量,不会自毁声誉,砸自己的招牌。

相对于高考作为录取标准,名校录取标准灵活复杂多样化,是他们几百年长盛不衰的基础。

回想几年前美华群体和美国大学打得几个关于对亚裔群体“歧视”的官司看,感慨万分啊。

美华打的那几个官司,总体上说对亚裔、华裔实际是弊大于利。我看了哈佛那个官司,华裔一点胜算都没有,按人口比例,亚裔只有4-5%左右,但在哈佛录取新生中,亚裔的比例在20%左右。 这数据摆着,即使你说很多亚裔SAT 1580的都没有被录取,黑人拉丁1400就录取了。。那确实是事实,但人家大学开办不可能让一部分人不成比例的做大吧。如果那几年少去闹腾这些,人家黑人和拉丁裔的还不一定真把这事太认真。

现在好了,人家觉醒了,都要进好大学,都要进名校,亚裔和华裔,非但没有保住原有已经占优势的,反而把根据地给丢了。

例子太多。去年美国数学奥林匹林大赛中,关于部分华裔学生的身份问题,也是闹得不可开交,一些美华或美国公民美华或待美国时间长的绿卡家长开始对那个人大合办的高中的子弟进军美国奥数代表队的资格,开始把纷争闹大,,,,等着看吧,这么一闹,下次美国数学奥数队,会采取措施对华裔人数限制,不管你是美国公民,绿卡还是持留学签证的。

本村的,倒没有出现大的事件,但也听到一些微词,比如从个别现象说IB是否对华裔歧视,基本是无稽之谈,看看历史IB招生,华裔比例是相当高的,45%了吧,如果要歧视,怎么可能让这么多比例的华裔入选。即使CAT取消后,华裔比例会下降,但也应该远远超过人口比例吧,30%+是有的。

类似录取上的倾斜中国自古就有,科举录取线会提高对江南才子的分数,以提高北方学子的录取人数,否则如果一视同仁,会造成巨大的地区差别,适当的平衡措施是有必要的。

事实如此。

现在也一样,同样的高考,各省录取线一样吗?至少少数民族有加分待遇吧?

听说加州只有伯克利大学录取一视同仁,大概亚裔超过一半了,这样发展下去,会有很多弊病。多元化的降分倾斜是有必要的。

西方社会现在走入一个怪圈,对于历史欠债,或弱势群体,应该做的是承认错误,真心道歉,加经济赔偿,,,,然后其他方面,可以有优惠,比如原住民申请大学,可以加分,对于美国来说就是黑人问题,,,这些措施都可以讨价还价运作的,但不能把社会基本的核心价值观或经济基本价值观动摇。比如把人权,平均,配额等等一股脑往社会所有方面扩展,,那就是灾难,拉低了社会整体的教育和竞争力水平。。。

老共49-79这30年的教训,这些人怎么就不参考呢?
体制不同。对政客而言,选票才是最最重要的。不让你高兴,怎么能让你把票投给我?至于长期影响, why do I care?

确实,弱势群体不照顾,完全按自然规则,迟早会发生社会动乱,中国古代封建社会都知道照顾,何况当今民主文明社会。

个人认为,美国成也移民败也移民,目前社会矛盾主要来源于人之间的差异必然造成大批不平等和矛盾,统治阶级没有好的方法调和。

洪武三十年(1397年)二月会试,以翰林学士刘三吾、王府纪善白信蹈主持丁丑科殿试。后发榜,陈䢿为第一,取录宋琮等51名,是为春榜。因所录51名全系南方人,故又称南榜。北方人一名未取,为历科所不见。

中国的高等教育入学总体做法是合理的。对少数民族或弱势群体,进行合理的倾斜,加分就是最主要的,这就是量的差别。

但如果把高考取消,或大幅降低难度标准,那就完蛋了。

美国之前对黑人和拉丁裔的隐形加分,其实并没有打破国家根本竞争力的根基。现在要把标准化考试剔除,美国的竞争力会象大坝溃堤那样崩塌。很多华裔精英的美国梦会破碎。美国在吸引优秀人才方面会溃败。

我认为中国高考不能取消,不具备人为操作的可能性。

美国名校有可能。不一定会崩溃。

崩溃不是马上发生的,都是一个量变到质变的过程。

古人云:”千里之堤,溃于蚁穴“

补偿也好,经济赔偿也好,加分也好,,依我看都是量变,但取消客观考试(这个本来美国非常强劲的选拔人才)的途径废除,长远就是崩溃。

现在大家也看到了,美国取消SAT/ACT之风已经在加速传播了,,,,,

现在几个基础技术和工程上,美国出乎意料的已经开始落后了,你可以短期培训和在岗实践让软件从业人员迅速上手(95%以上的软件人员其实根本不需要大学水平的数学和高中水平的物理化学知识),硬件方面(需要扎实数理化基础的),美国已经大步落后。

当然不用碰硬件的软件,算法,等等美国还是领先
