The California Community Colleges serves approximately 2.1 million students each year and is the largest system of higher education in the nation. The state's 112 community colleges are charged with providing workforce training, basic skills education and preparing students to transfer to four-year universities. Currently, 78 of our 112 community colleges accept an Early Assessment Program college-ready result in English and/or math in lieu of their own assessments for placement into transfer-level courses. This report is written in response to Education Code section 99301, which requires the California Community Colleges Board of Governors to make a one-time report to the governor and the Legislature on the implementation and results of the Early Assessment Program. The topics discussed in this report include: (1) Background of Early Assessment Program; (2) Legislative Changes; (3) Common Core State Standards; (4) Smarter Balanced Assessment Consortium; and (5) Early Assessment Program Implementation Data.
