Early Assessment Program

 
 
A collaborative effort between the California State University (CSU), participating California Community Colleges (CCC) and the California Department of Education (CDE) provides students the opportunity to use results from the CAASPP English Language Arts (ELA) and mathematics tests to provide an indicator of a student's readiness to take college-level English and math courses, through a program called Early Assessment Program (EAP).  Depending on a student's EAP status, the student may be exempt from taking CSU and CCC placement tests and may move directly into college-level courses upon enrollment
 
This CSU Your Pathway to College Readinessdocument details the various ways to become CSU college ready.

Question: 

 I'm an incoming junior in high school and plan on taking the CAASPP ELA and math tests in the spring, what should I know about the EAP?

Response:

When taking the CAASPP test, authorize the release of your EAP results to CSU and/or CCC when the option appears at the end of the ELA and math test. The CAASPP test will be offered in the spring at PUSD schools. Please inquire at your school to find out the test administration dates. Additionally, the CSU Are you rady for college level English and math document provides information on how your results are an indicator of readiness to take college level courses at CSU.

 

Question: 

I didn't select the bubble at the end of the ELA/math test, how do I get my results to the school?

Response:

If you did not select the button to release the results last spring, you can still provide a copy of your CAASPP Individual Student Report (ISR) to the CSU or CCC institution you plan to attend.  For test taken in the spring, ISRs will be sent home the following fall.
