CLA+ - Collegiate Learning Assessment

The CLA+ is a national assessment of students' critical thinking, problem solving, scientific and quantitative reasoning, writing, and ability to critique and make arguments. The CLA+ utilizes a value-added approach, focusing on the institution's contribution to the development of these skills. Participants in the CLA+ respond to open-ended writing prompts ("performance tasks") as well as a set of multiple-choice questions. Performance tasks present a real-world issue or problem and ask students to recommend a course of action based on information provided in a set of documents. Performance tasks typically include four to nine relevant documents, such as technical reports, data tables, newspaper articles, or emails.
