SAT's 'adversity' score: Privilege check or public relations? The College Board, which administers the SAT and AP tests, devised the new metric in part to counter criticism over persistent disparities in scores, which average higher for students who are Asian or white and whose families are rich and educated. The new measurement is based on 15 factors, including family wealth, crime rate and poverty levels in the student’s neighborhood and high school rigor and competitiveness, as well as proprietary College Board data. America’s population of poor people are roughly divided into 50% are White, 25% Black and 25% Latino. The rates of poverty for each race are much different though. Can we trust the Left Wingers who administer the SAT will be honest, objective and fair?
