Testing and Diversity in Postsecondary Education: The Case of California - This study examines how eliminating affirmative action in admitting students to the University of California system affected the diversity of students admitted. It also looks at the effects of using criteria other than race and ethnicity to increase student diversity, finding that none of the alternative admissions models analyzed, including race-neutral models based solely on gradepoint average, replicate the composition of the student population that existed before affirmative action was terminated.
