Background information l.jpg
Background Information

  • Oneonta’s original SCBA plan proposed to use SUNY rubrics to assess Critical Thinking in 2008-09

  • Chairs’ proposal in Fall 2007 to replace rubrics with test such as Collegiate Learning Assessment (CLA)

    • Concern about reliability and validity of rubrics

    • Concern about large number of courses/faculty that would necessarily be involved in use of rubrics

  • Development of formal proposal for consideration by College Senate in Spring 2008

  • Approval by College Senate of proposal on March 31, 2008


About the cla l.jpg
About the CLA

  • Not a multiple choice test – requires students to actively engage with materials presented over a computer in 60- to 90-minute session

  • Analyses adjust for students’ Entering Academic Ability and provide results for first-year students, graduating seniors, and “value added”

  • Assesses Critical Thinking and Writing

  • Two types of tasks

    • Performance

    • Analytic Writing

      • Make-an-Argument (i.e., SUNY CT outcome #2)

      • Break-an-Argument (i.e., SUNY CT outcome #1)
