The CSU Early Assessment Program
The Early Assessment Program (EAP) is the result of collaboration between the California Department of Education (CDE), State Board of Education (SBE), and California State University (CSU). The EAP, developed to align the competence required of incoming freshmen with the K-12 standards in English-language arts and mathematics, is voluntary and will be offered at all public California high schools beginning in spring 2004.
The Early Assessment of Readiness for College English portion of the EAP consists of optional multiple-choice questions and an essay that augment the Grade 11 California English-language Arts Standards Test (ELA CST).
The Early Assessment for Readiness for College Mathematics portion of the EAP consists of optional multiple-choice questions that augment the Algebra II and Summative High School Mathematics CSTs.
Please Note: These augmented tests are offered only to high school juniors.
