This new score will appear alongside a student's SAT score and will be featured in a section labeled the "Environmental Context Dashboard." The adversity score's formal name on the dashboard is "Overall Disadvantage Level," but it has been colloquially called the "adversity score" by college admissions officers.

A score of 50 is considered "average." Anything above 50 proves "hardship" while anything below 50 is considered "privilege."

This new "adversity score" number is calculated by assessing 15 factors that can better help admissions officers determine an individual student's social and economic background. These factors are first divided into three categories: neighborhood environment, family environment and high school environment.

Each of the three categories has five sub-indicators that are indexed in calculating each student's adversity score. Neighborhood environment will take into account crime rate, poverty rate, housing values and vacancy rate. Family environment will assess what the median income is of where the student's family is from; whether the student is from a single parent household; the educational level of the parents; and whether English is a second language. High school environment will look at factors such as curriculum rigor, free-lunch rate and AP class opportunities. Together these factors will calculate an individual's adversity score on a scale of one to 100.

You hit the nail on the head. This is ripe for a business opportunity.

Buy up real state in Santa Ana and instead of birthing hotels, we make them adversity score hotels. :)

So does the poor kid from the poor neighborhood get a higher or lower score if they transfer to a higher performing high school in District than staying at the less advantages zoned school?

This is like a golf handicap on students who worked hard but lived in a nice area...ridiculous, just a way to circumvent the quota rules.

It’s a attempt to divert the attention from the main story which is the college cheating/paying story. There is the guy which plead guilty that took tests for people.
