This collection of reports, outlines, and instructions provides information on the development, content, and use of the College-Level Academic Skills Test (CLAST), an achievement test that measures the communication and computation skills of college students as mandated by Florida state legislation. First, a status report on the development of CLAST is presented, which: (1) identifies the skills assessed by the test; (2) describes the version of CLAST that will be administered in 1982-83; (3) outlines the projected use of CLAST scores in determining eligibility for the award of an associate in arts degree; (4) considers plans for the administration of the test; (5) explains the CLAST score reporting process; (6) traces the development of CLAST; (7) outlines statewide administrative responsibilities; and (8) considers future developments of CLAST. Next, the communication and mathematics skills to be tested by CLAST are outlined, in the areas of reading, listening, writing, speaking, and computation. A detailed plan is then presented for the October 23, 1982 administration of CLAST, which includes a description of the test format, a testing schedule, procedures for registering students, directions for administering the test, and enumeration of the individual student reports, statewide data reports, and institutional data reports to be generated. Appendices include a glossary of terms, a breakdown of test items, and a detailed testing schedule. (AYC)
