The primary goal of the CAI, is to develop a comprehensive, common assessment system that will reduce unnecessary remediation, align to state legislation, and provide statewide efficiencies for the academic placement process within and between California colleges all of which will ultimately benefit student success. More specific goals include:

* Collaboration with existing statewide technology services and projects to develop a centralized, integrated technology solution to support the assessment and placement activities of the CCC;

* Expand the underlying systems of data and research to improve access to information necessary to support a comprehensive statewide assessment and placement system in support of students, faculty, and staff;

* Facilitate the development of and administer an effective and efficient common assessment system and web-portal that utilizes computer-adaptive testing methods, diagnostic features, and robust administrative tools to accurately assess students in English, Math, and ESL;

* Develop and provide professional development to faculty and staff related to common assessment tools and methodologies;

* Develop and administer a robust, effective, and timely support system for faculty, staff and students.
