Date and Time: October 11, 2018 9:00–10:30 AM
Location: Cooperstown, NY
Venue: Otesaga Resort Hotel

In this session, Elisabeth Barnett described why the use of multiple measures for assessment and placement is widely becoming viewed as superior to the use of placement tests alone. She discussed the ways that measures can be used in tandem when making placement decisions and shared the preliminary findings of an experimental study conducted in partnership with SUNY colleges to determine whether student outcomes improve when multiple measures are used for placement.
