But imagine for a moment that the biggest determinant of an applicant’s place in society in general, and in the college sweepstakes in particular, was, say, height.

S. society is not as it is because of an invisible hand of nature, but rather because a closed system has been created. The United States and some other societies have created cultures in which test scores matter profoundly. High test scores are needed for placement in higher tracks in elementary and secondary schools. They are needed for admission to selective undergraduate programs. They are needed again for admission to selective graduate and professional programs. It is really quite difficult to imagine how a person could gain access to many of the highest-paying and most prestigious jobs if he or she did not test well.

In addition to the reasons for the development of closed systems mentioned earlier, there may be a unique historical explanation for why the tests we use are so narrow.
