Implementing and Scaling Multiple Measures Assessment in the Context of COVID-19

When colleges overwhelmingly moved to remote learning and work in 2020 due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the capacity to run proctored placement tests was significantly reduced. The Center for the Analysis of Postsecondary Readiness examined how four states — Indiana, Virginia, Texas, and Washington — took system-level actions to overcome the limitations of multiple measures assessment and find new ways to place students. By decreasing reliance on standardized assessments, state systems can help institutions to reduce disparities in student outcomes and improve student success.
