Bill Summary

Under existing law, an institution of higher education (institution) is required to administer basic skills placement or assessment tests (tests) in English and math to matriculated students. The institution must select the tests from among those that meet standards established by the Colorado commission on higher education (CCHE). The bill prohibits an institution from using tests that are not available for use by school districts and high schools, including early colleges. CCHE must ensure that this requirement is included in the standards for these tests.
