The nonprofit that administers the SAT test to 2 million students each year has axed its nascent "adversity score," a clumsy attempt to distill the possible socioeconomic hardships and challenges of a student's background into a single neat and tidy number. Good call.

The College Board adversity score, which would have been presented alongside a student's test results in reports to prospective colleges, drew resistance since it made news in May. The factors considered were too general to be attached to a student whose own specific circumstances were not taken directly into account.
