English term or phrase: adversity score
Definition from Cambridge Blog:
A number of points assigned to a student applying to go to university or college representing their social and economic background, designed to show the university or college what difficulties the student has overcome.

Example sentence(s):
  • The College Board, the company that administers the SAT exam, said on Tuesday that it would withdraw its much-debated plan to include a so-called adversity score on student test results, saying it had erred in distilling the challenges faced by college applicants to a single number. The New York Times
  • As an education researcher who focuses on matters of equity, I believe the new adversity score will be an inadequate remedy for a test that has been inequitable from the start. The Conversation
  • Ironically, though, while an adversity score might have bettered my chances in college admissions, my mother would have adamantly objected to it. The things that the index hopes to capture were also the things that she wished to hide. The New Yorker
