Koretz, Daniel; Russell, Michael; Shin, Chingwei David; Horn, Cathy; Shasby, Kelly
Education Policy Analysis Archives, v10 n1 Jan 2002
Used data from California and a simplified model of the University of California admissions process to explore how various approaches to admissions affect the diversity of the admitted student population. The only approach that substantially increased minority student representation was accepting most students on the basis of within-school rather than statewide rankings, which caused a drop in average Scholastic Assessment Test scores and grade point average.
