  with STAR and CST’s
 15 additional multiple-choice items in
  English and mathematics
 45 minute essay required in English
 Selected items from CST and additional
  EAP items (including essay in English)
  are scored to determine student
  readiness for college English and/or
       EAP Testing Purposes

Early warning
      Identify students who need to
       do additional work in English
       and/or mathematics before
       entering the CSU

Identify student readiness
      Inform students, families, and
         high schools of students’
         readiness for college-level work
         in English and mathematics

12th grade interventions
      Motivate students to take
        needed steps in 12th grade to
        assure readiness
     Why the EAP was created

In 1999 over half of all students entering
the CSU demonstrated a proficiency in
English and mathematics of “not ready
for college level courses.” Close to 66%
of students entered the CSU needing
remediation in at least one subject.

A collaboration between
 – California State Board of
 – California Department of
 – California State University
               EAP Goals

                             Requirements Costs Time and Money

                       Students cannot enroll in for-credit CSU
                        college English and/or math classes until they
                        meet the requirements.

                       They must spend time taking remedial classes
                        during their freshman year until they meet the

                       They have to pay for the remedial classes.

                       They will graduate later because they get no
                        degree credit for remedial classes.

                       If students do not pass the remedial classes
                        by the end of their first year, they will have to
                        leave the university.

           Proficiency One Year later
The CSU has become very successful in helping remedial
students achieve proficiency in mathematics and English
              during their freshman year.

    The number of students fully prepared for both
    mathematics and English by the second year of
         enrollment reached an all time high
              of 19,734 or 83% in 2006.
New Essay Scoring and Administration

Beginning Spring 2007, students are
no longer required to fill in a “bubble”
to guide the scoring of English EAP
tests. All essays will be scored as long
as one EAP item on the multiple-choice
test is completed.

We heard your request- “Get results back
faster.” The EAP Essay administration
window was moved up in 2007, and will
also be moved up in 2008.

The EAP essays must be administered
between March 4-31, 2008.
   NEW EAP Results Reporting

EAP results are now included in the
STAR Student Report. As a result,
EAP scores will no longer be mailed to
student homes or provided directly to
the students.

Schools will still receive:
 • EAP Data File - a CD-ROM
    containing student results
 • EAP Data File layout – a description
    of the fields included on the data file
 • EAP District Reports – inside a
    green folder. There is a district
    report for each subject area tested.
    NEW - View results online

By following a simple five-step
process, students can determine
their English and mathematics
EAP status and get step-by-step
advice for preparing for the CSU.


Note: Students must bubble
where it says the CSU can
receive their results, other-wise the
results will not be available online.
        EAP Results Web Site

   The new EAP website has been
   updated to look like the STAR data
   reported on the CDE website.

   The site now reports:

    •   EAP report information by
        county, district, and school;

    •   Subgroups such as English
        Language fluency, economic
        status, parent education,
        ethnicity, gender and disability.
