Early Assessment Program: College Readiness

The Early Assessment Program (EAP) is a collaborative effort among the State Board of Education (SBE), the California Department of Education (CDE) and the California State University (CSU). The program was established to provide opportunities for students to measure their readiness for college-level English and mathematics in their junior year of high school, and to facilitate opportunities for them to improve their skills during their senior year.



The Challenge


The diagram below lists four opportunities in which students may achieve college readiness prior to their freshman year.

There are four possible statuses within CAASPP EAP. Each of these statuses may result in additional steps needed to complete before the end of your senior year. Learn more about what each of the statuses represents by visiting: Understanding CAASPP/EAP Results.
