Assessment Update: The passage of Assembly Bill 705 (AB 705) by the state of California has created a unique and exciting opportunity for incoming community college students to utilize their high school performance, previous higher education course work and non-cognitive measures in lieu of completing entrance testing to determine their Math and English course placement. The intent of AB 705 is to “maximize the probability that students will enter and complete transfer-level coursework in Math and English in a one year time-frame” and require placement in remedial course only when they are “highly unlikely to succeed” in transfer-level coursework.
