CLA+: Collegiate Learning Assessment, CLA
and SLE: Scholastic Level Exam
Critical-thinking and written-communication skills

The Collegiate Learning Assessment (CLA+), created by the Council for Aid to Education, is an performance based online assessment that measures critical-thinking and written-communication skills.  It is a mandatory test given to students to help Sage College of Albany faculty improve curriculum, teaching and learning.  The CLA assessment series is administered at SCA every other academic year beginning in fall 2013.  Based on the testing plan below, incoming new first time freshmen complete the assessment in fall and senior level students who began their studies at Sage as freshmen complete the assessment in spring.  Sage faculty will analyze overall group results to determine if curriculum enhancements are needed.

The CLA+ assessment is online and takes approximately 75-90 minutes to complete.  The SLE supplement takes approximately 10 minutes to complete.
