Test-Optional Enhancements

Test-Optional Enhancements

For 2023, we've enhanced our industry-leading capabilities for navigating a test-optional world in two ways:

  • To help you get a sense for the degree to which an institution has "embraced" test-optional admissions, we've added a "% Test" section to the SAT/ACT chart to show you the percentage of the Class of 2025 entering class that submitted test scores.
  • We've refined our test-optional recommendation algorithm to always recommend applying test-optional when the score is below average or weaker than your GPA/rank.

CK 360™ Data Visualization

CK 360™ Data Visualization

With college admissions headed to a "new normal," there's an acute need for insights to guide the way. Those insights start with national trends, but ultimately rely on your command of local results.

That's why we created CK 360™. New for 2023, CK 360™ is a powerful data visualization tool designed to help you glean critical insights from your data with ease.

Always available on your desktop, insights to questions are always just a click or two away. it's a tremendous way to navigate a changing admissions landscape and support conversations you're having with students, parents, team and board.
