The original Multiple Measures Assessment Project (MMAP) was a collaborative effort led by the RP Group and Educational Results Partnerships’ Cal-PASS Plus system to develop, pilot, and assess implementation of a statewide placement tool using multiple measures. The project was originally funded through the California Community College’s Common Assessment Initiative (CAI). The project has now shifted to support the AB 705 implementation and is funded through the California Community College’s Chancellor’s Office
The Multiple Measures Assessment Project engaged with over 90 pilot colleges statewide to implement multiple measures assessment using high school performance to maximize student performance in college courses. With the shift towards AB 705 compliance, the MMAP Research team is working the Community College Chancellor’s Office to provide support, research, and recommendations on maximizing students’ likelihood of completing a transfer level math or English course in one year, or an ESL course in three years.
