Institutional Selection

Systems in four states reported selecting from state-approved measures or proposing measures approved by the state. For example, California community colleges are required to use multiple measures of their choice to place students in developmental courses. Connecticut requires that students’ placement be based on multiple measures; the measures included are selected by the institution. Similarly, the Washington State Board of Community and Technical Colleges is charged with “encourage[ing] colleges to use multiple measures to determine whether a student must enroll in a precollege course” and in Missouri, placement of students into appropriate college-level courses must be based on multiple assessment measures, but the measures are not specified.
