A practical college exam
Placeholder Image

It's been pretty well established that doing well on traditional tests used for college admissions has no relationship to how well a student will do in college.  Students with the same test scores often have different outcomes, some drop out, some excel and some struggle through.  If only there were a test that would indicate how well high school students will do once they are in college.  Something like:
