is an important new documentary examining the impact of the SAT and ACT on higher education. Including insights from a wide range of thought leaders and stake holders, the film advances understanding of the consequences of relying on testing for everything from admission decisions to college rankings. The film is helping colleges and high schools better serve students as it inspires conversations about what the tests measure and mean and their role in enrollment policies. Interest among educators, students, parents, and counselors suggests this film is long overdue.
- The film is now available for campus screenings. Dozens of enrollment offices, leadership teams, and graduate schools of education are screening the film. Institutions include DePaul University, Swarthmore College, University of Illinois Urbana-Champaign, Marquette University, Rider University, University of Denver, Miami University, and Harvard University.
- University screenings include: internal viewings for leadership teams; professional development programming for admissions officers; campus-wide events promoting better understanding of admissions policies; and facilitating discussions with key audiences (prospective students, counselors, and parents) about institutional values and new test policies.
- The film comes with an in-depth discussion guide to help lead post-film conversations.
