CLAST Results for June 2000: Miami-Dade Community College and Statewide. Information Capsule.
Miami-Dade Community Coll., FL. Office of Institutional Research.
The results of the June 2000 CLAST administration are reported in this information capsule. Results are reported for first-time examinees, retake examinees, and students earning alternatives to the CLAST requirement. During this administration period, 3,858 Miami-Dade Community College (M-DCC) (Florida) students earned an alternative in at least one of the CLAST subtests, while 460 students were exempted from the entire CLAST. In contrast, 18% of M-DCC students who took the entire CLAST test for the first time passed all four subtests in the June 2000 administration. For students earning CLAST alternatives by subtest, more alternatives were granted in the communications subtests of Essay (2,595), English Language Skills (2,563), and Reading (2,581) than in the Mathematics subtest (1,680). During this administration 9,419 CLAST alternatives were earned college-wide. The CAT-CLAST is now available for first-time administrations of the Reading, English Language Skills, and Mathematics subtests. Since many students take only portions of the test as first-time examinees, it may be more informative to look at the pass rates for the individual subtests. (JA)
