The Value of Testing in Graduate Admissions
from Inside Higher Ed
In an opinion piece published last week, Julie R. Posselt and Casey W. Miller, made the argument that the "test-optional" movement not only has merit but must be a conversation in doctoral programs across the country. We agree that "a serious conversation about current admissions" in graduate education is necessary. We agree that this conversation requires critical introspection and candid conversations. But, we caution faculty members and admissions committees to look beyond what may seem a simple solution of going test-optional before addressing the hard work of analysis and introspection.
