Collegiate Readiness Assessment (CLA+) for Higher Education
CAE’s performance-based assessments provide a more complete picture of students’ readiness for the rigors of today’s academics and their next steps following graduation by measuring the skills that help them apply their content knowledge effectively — critical thinking, problem solving, and written communication.
The resulting data can be used for formative and summative purposes, including evaluating how well students have developed essential skills at the beginning and/or end of a particular class or academic year, or to measure growth over multiple years.
