What’s the Best Measure of College-Readiness?

Mounting research shows that GPA, especially when used together with additional assessment methods, is a better predictor of college- and career-readiness than a single-test such as the SAT or Accuplacer.

A recent study shows that roughly 30% of community college students are misdirected to developmental courses due to over-reliance on single test methods to determine college-readiness.

Additional research suggests that minority and underrepresented students are disproportionally and negatively affected by over-reliance on single-test assessment methods.
