Advancing Placement for Student Success

The Common Assessment Initiative will develop a Common Assessment System for the benefit of all California Community Colleges and their students.

The Common Assessment System will contain test preparation, test delivery, test administration, data collection, and course placement guidance, and will use centralized and integrated technology solutions to support assessment and placement.

This website will serve as the primary source of information to the public, and to California Community Colleges faculty, staff, and administrators about the progress of the initiative.
