“California State University offers the most innovative solution. By using the state’s 11th-grade standards test to determine whether a student can take a college course for credit, students get a heads-up as to whether they’re learning what the university expects.”

The Early Assessment Program (EAP) is a collaborative effort among the State Board of Education (SBE), the California Department of Education (CDE) and the California State University (CSU). The program was established to provide opportunities for 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 goal of the EAP program is to have California high school graduates enter the CSU fully prepared to begin college-level study.
