I was informed of a great resource recently put out by FairTest.org. According to the site’s description, The National Center for Fair & Open Testing (FairTest) works to end the misuses and flaws of standardized testing and to ensure that evaluation of students, teachers and schools is fair, open, valid and educationally beneficial. One of the resources available is a list of SAT/ACT Optional 4-Year Colleges. This list includes many schools all over the country.
