Why should I take the Collegiate Learning Assessment+?

  • The CLA+ is a great way to market yourself to future employers.  Share and use your results as you pursue career and post-graduate opportunities.
  • MONETARY AWARDS FOR TOP SCORERS!  There is a prize of $400 for the top score, $200 for the second highest score, and $100 each for the third through sixth highest scores.
  • Each participating student will receive a score report indicating the level of mastery of skills measured by the CLA+.  These results can be added to LinkedIn profiles, print and on-line resumes, and other platforms accessible by potential employers.

Who Is Eligible to Take the CLA+?

In the Winter/Spring, the CLA+ is open to seniors graduating in Winter, Spring, Summer or Fall 2017.

What is the Collegiate Learning Assessment+?

  • The CLA+ measures critical-thinking, problem solving, analytic reasoning, and writing skills using a performance-based assessment.   For more information see the Student Guide (pdf).
  • The principal goal of the CLA+ is to provide an objective assessment about the critical-thinking and written communication skills students possess as they enter college as freshmen and exit as seniors.
  • Cal Poly, San Luis Obispo is among hundreds of institutions that use CLA+ on an annual basis to measure the value the institution contributes to student learning. 
  • The test is administered in computer labs.  Each session is set for 90+ minutes to allow students plenty of time to complete the assessment and check their work.
