Maximizing High School Transcript Information for MMAP
October 6, 2017

This webinar covered new tools available to colleges to better understand and help encourage local participation in CalPASS Plus, California’s voluntary intersegmental educational system of data, to increase the number of participating schools and districts so that more students will have multiple measures information available, regardless of which California Community College they might end up attending. This webinar also covered potential alternative approaches for students for whom student high school information is not available in CalPASS Plus, including local transcript review and self-reported high school information. View the archived webinar.

Presenters: Ken Sorey and John Hetts, EdResults Partnership/CalPASS Plus

Implementing and Improving Your MMAP Process - Examples from Pilot Colleges
September 26, 2017

This webinar showcased how three pilot colleges across the state have locally implemented evidence-based approaches to multiple measures. Given variation in curricula, institutional and departmental structure, and decision-making that colleges may face across the California Community Colleges, this webinar provided participants with numerous examples and strategies from three different approaches to successful implementation of multiple measures to help inform local implementation at their own campus. View the archived webinar.

Automating the MMAP Process
September 6, 2017

This webinar will include examples from three pilot colleges who have automated parts or all of their MMAP process to help streamline the student placement process. The colleges will share how they approached the automation process, what they learned, and improvements they have made over time. View the archived webinar.
