Improving Student Placement Using Multiple Measures Assessment

Research suggests that single placement tests result in many students taking remedial courses when they could have passed college-level courses. As a result, colleges around the country are turning to the use of multiple measures to improve the accuracy of placement. The evidence base for this approach is growing: Seven New York State colleges participated in an experimental study and discovered that students placed using multiple measures were more like to pass a college-level course. The colleges also learned about the complexities involved in setting up a multiple measures system. This webinar will share information on why multiple measures systems are needed and what to take into account when establishing them.
