Eliminating Standardized Tests in College Admissions: The New Affirmative Action?
Zwick, Rebecca
Phi Delta Kappan, v81 n4 p320-24 Dec 1999

Although it is possible to design a workable admissions policy that excludes standardized tests (as 15 percent of colleges have done), banishing admissions tests to further a social-policy goal indirectly is unsound policy.
