In Support of AB 2860 (Pavley): Integrate K-12
Assessment with Higher Education

AS-2663-04/TEKR/FGA - March 6-7, 2004

RESOLVED: That the Academic Senate of the California State University (CSU) strongly support both the language and the intent of Assembly Bill 2860 (Pavley) - Integrate K-12 Assessment with Higher Education as introduced.

RATIONALE: This bill supports the Early Assessment Program (EAP) of the California State University by providing authorization for student data transmission to the CSU.

The EAP using California Standards Test (CST), taken in the 11th grade, allows students to earn exemption from the CSU's Entry Level Mathematics Examination (ELM) and English Placement Test (EPT) student-readiness placement requirement. Transmission of students' performance on the CST for early assessment of students' readiness for baccalaureate-level study at the CSU is essential.

APPROVED UNANIMOUSLY - May 6-7, 2004
