The Future of Testing

September 15, 2021

BusinessCAS Research Director Stephen Taylor hosts “entrance testing” experts Joy Jones (Chief Product Officer and General Manager, Assessments at Graduate Management Admission Council) and Walt Jiménez (Senior Director at ETS) for a brief conversation about the role testing will play in the future of GME.

Topics addressed include:

  • Why do GME programs use testing in their admissions process? What benefits does it have for students and the institutions they attend?
  • How can schools reintroduce a testing requirement to their candidates without risking the loss of candidates from their applicant pool?
  • What expectations will GME programs — and students — have about the future of testing?
  • How accurate are claims suggesting GME no longer needs tests because students who didn’t take them have had success?
