    • Researchers found that participation in EAP reduces the probability of remediation at CSU Sacramento
        • by 6.2 percentage points in English
        • by 4.3 percentage points in math
  • Achieve’s American Diploma Project content analysis of EAP (October 2009):
    • The EAP assessments address college-ready content identified by CSU faculty for entering credit-bearing coursework
    • The EAP augmentations provide rigor and contribute to authentic college readiness tasks for the assessment of a students’ college preparation
eap outcomes
EAP Outcomes
  • Cal-PASS examined the relationship between EAP, English matriculation pathways, and student outcomes in the first university English course attempted at a CSU campus.
  • Highlights
  • About 1 in 7 entering 1st yr students at the CSU campus exempt from the EPT based upon their EAP score.
  • Success rates in Expository Writing for EAP-exempt students were high (93%) and were comparable to students determined college level English qualified based on the EPT test (92%).
  • EAP exempt students had the highest average (mean) grade points in Expository Writing.
