16. Standardized test scores are not the best predictors of college success.

Studies have shown that underprivileged students tend to perform worse on standardized tests than students whose families can afford test prep and coaching. A better measure of potential college success is the high school GPA. Poor students who show the persistence to achieve a high GPA have higher college graduation rates than those who do well on the ADT/SAT but have mediocre high school GPAs. Standardized tests arenít needed to identify the students who study and get good grades in high school, especially is they also take some Advanced Placement courses.
