OPT OUT FREAK OUT NEWS: How wrong can you be? If you're Mahalia Hines, so wrong it would be laughed at if she weren't a member of the Board of Education. Board member says with a straight face 'you can't get into college' without ACT and or SAT!

Anyone who has been to a meeting of the Chicago Board of Education knows that some of the most interesting prattle from the seven members of Rahm Emanuel's school board will come when most people have gone home. Rather than answer questions posed by parents, teachers, students and community leaders during the all-too-brief "public participation" portions of the Board meetings, the Board members massage their digital assistants, nod out, or snarl while angry citizens demand facts and justice.

Chicago Board of Education member Mahalia Hines once against showed her pretentious ignorance by asserting that children will have to take the SAT and/or the ACT if they want to get into college. Actually, the number of colleges and universities requiring the controversial tests has been declining dramatically for years. Substance photo by George N. Schmidt. And so it was at the March 26, 2014 meeting of the Chicago Board of Education that Board member Mahalia Hines, who briefly worked as a principal in Chicago before cashing out for her pension and paving her own yellow brick roach to homes in Chicago and Florida, spoke sententiously -- after most people were gone. Hines opined that the people who were all for Opt Out were surely going to pay the price when it came time to apply for college because, Hines claims, you have to have those ACT and SAT scores in order to get into college. Listening to the Board member without knowing the facts, someone might actually believe her. But in fact, not only is she a little wrong, but the statement is absurd.

Every year more and more colleges and universities are dropping both the SAT and the ACT from the list of stuff they want to know about prospective students. Already all research (not just some) have shown that the ACT and SAT suck as predictors of college success. And the best way to know if a student has a chance at college success?

Course grades!

The kind that teachers give after teaching and assessing the kids on real subjects in real time over a semester or year in a real classroom.

But that wasn't going to stop Mahalia Hines from prattling on, and anyone who doesn't believe Substance can catch the Board video next week when the censored version of the Board meeting becomes available on the Board's website.

Meanwhile, for those who are impatient, here is the most current list of colleges and universities for which the SAT and ACT are either optional or not wanted at all. It's a very very long list, compiled by Fair Test. As Fair Test explains: "This list includes institutions that are "test optional," "test flexible" or otherwise de-emphasize the use of standardized tests by making admissions decisions about substantial numbers of applicants who recently graduated from U.S. high schools without using the SAT or ACT." Like reality (but unlike the way members of the Chicago Board of Education are programmed to think), the whole testing thing is complicated.


Colleges and Universities That Do Not Use SAT/ACT Scores for Admitting Substantial Numbers of Students Into Bachelor Degree Programs

Current as of Winter 2014

This list includes institutions that are "test optional," "test flexible" or otherwise de-emphasize the use of standardized tests by making admissions decisions about substantial numbers of applicants who recently graduated from U.S. high schools without using the SAT or ACT.

As the notes indicate, some schools exempt students who meet grade-point average or class rank criteria while others require SAT or ACT scores but use them only for placement purposes or to conduct research studies. Please check with the school's admissions office to learn more about specific admissions requirements, particularly for international or non-traditional students.
