Chalk Talk: Standardized Testing vs. Transcripts
Which is more important: transcripts or standardized tests? Many colleges and universities promote holistic reading of college applications. This means they read everything they receive when considering whether to accept an applicant. This may well be true, but the simple fact is that some elements of a student’s application carry more weight than others. Similarly, some students think that SAT or ACT scores are the most important part of an application, but the truth is, the transcript is the most important element. The transcript is a record of the student’s class performance, class selection, and possibly even sports and extracurricular activities throughout all of high school. A high score on a standardized test can certainly help a student gain admittance to a college, but the transcript still demonstrates that student’s accomplishments to a more profound degree. It’s more important that a student performs well consistently in classes than test well on one day.
