You are warmly invited to attend an on-campus showing of the documentary titled, “The Test & the Art of Thinking.” The film addresses crucial questions about the SAT/ACT college entrance exams, including the value of the test score and what the test actually measures.
In 2018, Augsburg voted in favor of piloting a test-optional admission policy. The admissions department is organizing this thought-provoking opportunity as the institution continues to better understand the impact this policy has on applicants to the university.
When: Thursday, January 31st, 3:45 p.m.
Where: Hagfors 150A
Popcorn and beverages provided. Optional questions, comments, and discussion following the film.
