This companion site to FRONTLINE's recent program examines the "national obsession" with the SAT test and the controversy surrounding it. At the site, users can read a large selection of interviews with test prep experts, admissions officials, SAT critics, and educators; view a video clip of an undergraduate admissions screening session at the University of California, Berkeley; explore the test score gap and the debate on race and admissions; and read about the test itself, the prep business, and the American ideal of meritocracy. Another feature allow users to play the role of admissions counselor and review five applications to the UC-Berkeley and then compare their decision with the professionals. A bibliography, video excerpt, and collection of annotated links round out the site.
