Early Assessment Program

The Early Assessment Program (EAP) was developed to provide high school seniors an early signal and opportunity to enter any of the 23 CSU campuses and some community colleges ready to begin college level coursework.

The program was established to provide opportunities for high school students to measure their readiness for college-level English and mathematics in their junior year of high school,and to facilitate opportunities for them to improve their skills during their senior year.

The EAP test is administered along with the California Standard Test (CST) in the spring semester of 11th grade.  Students who decide to participate respond to an essay prompt in their Language Arts class and an additional 15 multiple choice in mathematics and English during the CST test.
