NCAA task force: No more standardized test requirements

An NCAA task force set up to assess standardized tests and their impact on athletic eligibility recommended Friday that eligibility no longer rely on a standardized test score.

That recommendation comes after six months of research and consult spurred on by the NCAA’s overarching plan to advance racial equity.

“This work reflects the NCAA’s commitment to continually reviewing our academic standards based on the best available data and other relevant information,” said Morgan State president and task force leader David Wilson.

“We are observing a national trend in NCAA member schools moving away from requiring standardized test scores for admissions purposes and this recommendation for athletics eligibility aligns directly with that movement.”

A change could come as early as this winter, when the Division I Committee on Academics and Division II Academic Requirements Committee meet, in February 2022.

The task force held dialogue with several disparate groups to come to its recommendation, including the Knight Commission on Intercollegiate Athletics, the National Association for College Admission Counseling, several testing agencies and a survey of Division I & II membership.
