The need for a sign of academic prep and college placement afforded the American College Testing. Since the early 1900's, standardized college entrance test has been the forefront of getting into college. Student achievement in school has employed standardized testing as an effective instrument for predicting success. A variety of studies have proven the importance of ACT testing as being a trustworthy source in predicting a student's achievement. But, other studies have demonstrated the lack of importance and unsuccessful indicators which come with standardized testing. Assessing the background, research studies, pros and the cons of the standardized testing will resolve of why some colleges and post-secondary schooling systems are moving away from this kind of testing just as they adopted it. Too much emphasis is put on standardized testing for college admissions. Standardized testing is the number one way to enroll students in to college. Standardized testing has its own pros and cons when it comes to college admissions. The ACT and SAT avenues play a important part in students' lives more than actual school life. Student-athletes have a lot harder stint with college admissions than most when it comes to standardized testing ("arguments"). For instance, two young men, John and Greg, plays high school soccer with the fantasy of playing at a college degree. Both have exactly the same athletic ability, but John had a 3.5 GPA while Greg had a 2.0 GPA. Scores are received and John made a 17 and Greg makes a 24. While both student-athletes have equal ability, most schools in the nation might only want Greg despite John's 3.5 GPA. Is that fair? Did Greg prepare better compared to John? Was John with a bad day? Was Greg's version of the evaluation so different, which if John would.
