In this article updated on CNBC.COM TUE, MAY 26 2020, 2:46 PM EDT it talks about how coronavirus pandemic has forced schools to shut their doors and forced The College Board, the organization that administers the SAT to cancel and postpone testing dates. In response, many colleges announced they would temporarily not require students to submit standardized test scores. Now, some schools are starting to make the temporary decision permanent.

Dr. Dani Babb is quoted in the article:

“I expect other universities to follow suit,” says Danielle Babb, former professor at UC Berkeley in a statement sent to CNBC Make It. “Universities are going to have to look at their own internal metrics to determine which critical success factors have enabled students to persist in their program and end up moving into gainful employment after graduation.”
