College Heads Want to Ditch Pre-College Testing
The Committee of Presidents of Public Colleges in Israel has prepared a legal opinion arguing that requiring that the Psychometric test be used as a criteria for admission is illegal.
Public college heads report that in recent years, the Committee for Higher Education has allowed them to create new programs of study only on the condition that they screen applicants based on their test scores.
The Psychometric test is a standardized test in mathematics, verbal reasoning, and English which Israeli students take as part of the college admissions process.
