Can't Get No SATisfaction

Temple University, along with nearby private Bryn Mawr College recently announced that it was doing away with the requirement for prospective applicants to submit standardized test scores (SAT, ACT) as part of their admissions process.  Temple does however urge applicants who scored highly on the tests to continue to submit their results.  This also follows the SAT announcement in March that they are reverting to a 1600 point system rather than the current 2400 point test.

Is this further dumbing down of the American academic system or just doing away with pointless testing that doesn't accurately predict outcomes?
