Bryant University has announced that it will no longer require the SAT or ACT for admission. The shift will start as a four-year pilot, in which applicants who do not wish to submit test scores will instead provide two or three short answer questions. "As an institution committed to developing the student as a whole, this was a natural progression in our admission process as it allows students more opportunities to demonstrate their strengths and talents," said a statement from the university. "While we recognize that standardized tests accurately measure aptitude for many students, there are many still whose talents are not measured by such tests."
