So long, standardized testing: University of California regents unanimously vote to drop SAT and ACT admissions requirements - USA TODAY

The University of California's Board of Regents unanimously voted to suspend SAT and ACT testing requirements for freshman applicants through 2024.

The University of California Board of Regents unanimously voted to suspend the SAT and ACT testing requirements for freshman applicants through 2024 and eliminate them for California students after that – a plan proposed by Janet Napolitano, the university's system's president.

Instead, the UC system – which includes about 280,000 students across the University of California, Los Angeles, the University of California, Berkeley, and seven other undergraduate schools – will focus on creating its own test "that better aligns with the content the University expects students to have mastered for college readiness" and its values, according to a news release.

The approved plan will make SAT and ACT test scores optional for 2021-22 and 2022-23 applicants.

By 2025, both testing requirements will be eliminated for California students, even if the new test created by the system is considered "unfeasible or not ready," says the release

The UC system's vote could be a turning point in the long-running debate about the equality of standardized testing, which critics have argued are biased against low-income and minority students and favor wealthier students whose families can afford to spend thousands of dollars on preparatory courses
