Temple University scraps SAT requirement for new students

Yahoo! National News - Tue, 07/29/2014 - 23:07
(Reuters) - Philadelphia's Temple University said on Tuesday it will no longer require prospective students to submit a standardized test score when they apply, joining a small but growing group of schools that believe there are other ways to gauge talent. Temple said it is the first public research university in the United States' Northeast to broaden its admissions policy in this way. Most U.S. schools still rely on students' SAT or ACT test scores when choosing whom to admit. A prospective student's high-school grade point average, class rank or even his or her "grit, self-determination and self-confidence" may all be better predictors of success in higher education, Temple said in its announcement.
