CLAST Status of Associate in Arts Degree Seekers: A Different Perspective on Fulfilling the CLAST Requirement. Information Capsule #97-05C.
This information capsule presents the College Level Academic Skills Test (CLAST) status of Associate in Arts degree seekers at Miami-Dade Community College for fall terms 1995 and 1996. Tables present CLAST results by subtest for a cross section of A.A. degree seekers college-wide. For comparative purposes, fall term 1995 statistics (prior to the implementation of the CLAST alternative) are presented with those from fall term 1996. The introduction of the CLAST alternative increased the percentage of students satisfying the CLAST requirement in all categories of cumulative credits earned for each subtest. Overall, 27% of fall 1996 students had satisfied the CLAST requirement, compared with only 14% in fall 1995. For students who had earned 60 credits, 69% of fall 1996 students had satisfied the CLAST requirement, compared with only 53% in fall 1995. These data will form a baseline to assess the effect of implementing recommendations from the CLAST Action Plan. Information on the less successful mathematics results are included with explanations for lower scores. Implications of college-wide test results also are provided. (AS)
