CCRC Senior Research Scholar Elisabeth Barnett described the reasons to consider the use of multiple measures assessment (MMA) for placement and how an MMA system can be structured. She will addressed some common concerns about using multiple measures, especially high school GPA. Finally, she shared selected results from the CAPR experimental research done in partnership with SUNY colleges, where researchers studied the use of a data-analytics approach to multiple measures assessment and placement and found that this approach improves student outcomes.
