About the Initiative

California Community Colleges faculty and staff are working with the Common Assessment Initiative (CAI) to develop new ESL, math and English assessments. Students’ scores will be portable and each college will make local placement decisions. The web-based platform will deliver timely results. There are 12 pilot colleges; it will be rolled out statewide in phases beginning Fall 2016 through 2018. Colleges will receive professional development and other support.
