Yoon Choi, Chief Executive Officer of CollegeSpring

The use of the SAT in college admissions has sparked debate and controversy since its inception in 1926. Over the past century, the test itself has faced criticism of racial bias, while the rise of the lucrative test preparation industry has led many to question its reliability as a measure of pure academic merit. Dr. Choi’s talk gives a brief history of the test, an overview of current debates about its role in college access, and presents a path forward in which the test can be used as a tool for opportunity rather than as a barrier to college admission.
