Taking the SAT or ACT is a high school rite of passage and a requirement on most college applications. But more and more schools are going “test optional.” That means applicants can submit SAT scores, but they don’t have to. Does a high score on the SAT point to college success? Or is it an unfair measurement? Let us know what you think.
Elevate the discussion with a Make & Share. Conduct a video or audio interview with someone from your school (or community) who took the SAT. Or ask a peer about an experience taking a high-stakes test and whether they felt their scores reflected their overall academic performance. Upload your YouTube, Vimeo or Soundcloud link to the Make & Share tab.
