New Push for Test Optional
Scott Jaschik, Inside Higher Ed
Bucknell University announced in February that it was ending the requirement that all applicants submit SAT or ACT scores. Its announcement, coming just before the scandal in college admissions broke, didn't receive much attention nationally. But it stands out nonetheless. Many colleges that have gone test optional do not recruit nationally or have competitive admissions, but Bucknell does.
In the weeks since, more colleges have gone test optional, and there are signs that the policy shift is on the upswing.
