Students

Early Assessment Program

All juniors who attend public high school in California automatically participate in the EAP.  EAP is now fully integrated into the California Assessment for Student Performance and Progress (CAASPP) which students take during spring semester of their junior year. However, in order for student results to be released to California State University campuses and California Community Colleges, students must "bubble" to release their scores. This will also enable students to see their test results online, and make it easier for CSU campuses to match EAP scores to applications and exempting qualified students from the CSU English and/or Entry Level Mathematics Placement Tests.

Benefits of the EAP

  • Aligning standards so that success in high school means readiness for the CSU;
  • Providing high school students with an early signal about their college readiness and adequate time to prepare before entering CSU;
  • Ensuring the senior year is a time for directed, purposeful preparation for college;
  • Exempting CSU-ready students from taking CSU placement tests, thereby, reducing testing time;
  • Aligning expectations by working together with students, teachers and administrators to create and sustain a college-going atmosphere.
