Test req's are being phased out for admissions. They favor richer students and are thus deemed unfair.

BUT...they are in fact quite predictive of college success. This does not mean that higher scores definitively indicate greater potential, only greater preparation. There is a correlation, but it is imperfect, to the point where schools are dropping it.

Colleges are changing their missions to seek greater potential (via non-testing factors), versus greater preparation, for social justice reasons and to enable potential lifelong-achievers previously repressed by being poor or unfairly repressed. Potential hidden behind repression is harder to spot, so admissions is now more complex.
