In Support of AB 2860 (Pavley): Integrate K-12
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
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
