The Test and The Art of Thinking

The film explores the debate over the SAT and ACT exams from a wide array of perspectives. While more than 3 million high school students take these college entrance exams annually, there have been growing questions about exactly what these tests measure, what role they play in the admissions process, and how predictive they are of academic success. Davis interviews students, parents, counselors, test-prep professionals, and academics to focus on this uniquely American rite of passage and how it reflects deeper issues in our educational system - and society as a whole.
