Summary Report on Arkansas State University's Participation in the College Level Examination Program (CLEP)--1971-74.
On March 1, 1971, Arkansas State University publicly announced its policy on credit-by-examination through the College Level Examination Program (CLEP). Preceding this announcement institutional research was conducted to determine appropriate cut-off scores for awarding credit on the CLEP General Examinations and certain subject examinations. This document is a summary of CLEP credit recipients from the inception of the institution's participation in the program (March 1, 1971 December 31, 1974). Data included in the document cover: (1) number and percent of students who earned credit through CLEP (and those whose scores did not qualify them for credit) in each subject and the ability of those students as measured by CLEP and the American College Test (ACT); (2) total semester hour intervals with the number of students, the mean cumulative GPA, the mean ACT composite standard score, and the mean ACT percentile rank (ASU norms) for each interval; (3) distributions of grades earned by CLEP scaled scores and/or subtest scaled scores for awarding credit, and courses for which credit may be earned. Following the tables is an analysis of estimated monetary savings through CLEP. (Author/KE)
