Developed by the RAND Corporation and the Council for Aid to Education (CAE), the CLA+ is an open-ended assessment that allows for a direct measure of student learning in the areas of critical thinking and writing. Beginning in the 2006-2007 academic year, this assessment has been administered to entering freshmen in the fall and graduating seniors in the spring at Stanislaus State.
