With so many articles being written on colleges and universities going test-optional, we decided to have some fun with what that actually means. Since almost all articles rely on Fairtest.org's website, we used that as the basis for these questions.
Since this quiz isn't going on anyone's transcripts, we've made the answers instantly pop up after a question is answered.

8) What does "test-optional" mean to you?
Students get to choose whether to submit testing scores as part of the admission application.
If you don't submit test scores, you have to submit other stuff like interviews or writing samples.
Some students MUST submit scores, but some students do not need to submit test scores.
If your GPA is a above a certain threshold, you do not need to send test scores.
Some type of test scores (AP, IB, for instance) are needed, but not SAT or ACT scores.
You can submit scores if you want, but they are not reviewed by admissions staff.
All of the above
That's right! Test-optional is a nebulous term that encompasses all of those choices, So long as a school has any of those choices as a method for getting in, it's on Fairtest's list.
