College admissions officers will receive an “adversity score” as part of SAT

2 CQ

The College Board is seeking to address hidden inequities in the college application process by introducing a new “adversity score.”

The data point seeks to quantify a student’s socio-economic privilege, or lack of privilege, using information about their community and their high school.

This comes at a time of heightened scrutiny for testing and college admissions. The College Board is expected to make the adversity score widely available in 2020.

This was about a chef not the college admission topic?!

I totally agree with you. This had absolutely nothing to do with the summary, and the picture that goes with it. Someone didn't listen to the recording apparently.
