How to Use This Toolkit
CAPR research tested different models of MMA and concluded that relatively simple systems that give students more than one way to demonstrate their readiness for college-level work meet the needs of most colleges. In the Planning section of this toolkit, we’ll walk you through the process of designing an MMA system that works for your college.
But first, go to the Building Your Knowledge section to learn more about MMA. Then, in the second section, explore how to make the case for MMA at your college. Once you’ve planned and implemented your MMA reforms, you can use our resources for monitoring the effects of MMA and making improvements. In each section, we have tools for you to take back to your college to work with your colleagues and additional background reading.
CAPR and other researchers are continuing to conduct research on MMA because we still have a lot to learn. So be sure to check back with us as we update this toolkit.
We hope you find these resources useful. If you have questions, we’re here to help. But for now, dive in!
