Early Assessment Program (EAP)

The Early Assessment Program (EAP) measures your math skills at the end of your junior year to let you know in advance if you are ready for college level work. If you elect to take the EAP Math Test you will receive an EAP status at the beginning of your senior year informing you whether or not you are ready to enroll in for-credit math courses.  If you are not ready, you can take advantage of your senior year to prepare for the CSU.

About the EAP Math Test
It's easy to participate in the EAP. Just do the following:
  • Take the required 11th grade standardized math test. 
    • This test will be given to you towards the end of your junior year
    • Only students taking the Standardized Testing and Reporting (STAR) test in Algebra 2 or High School Summative Mathematics are eligible to participate in the EAP
  • Look for the 15 additional multiple choice questions from the CSU.
    • This section of the test is marked by the CSU logo.
    • Be sure to "bubble in" the area that indicates that you want your EAP results released to the CSU.
Results Notification
  • Your EAP results will be mailed to you by late summer.
  • The results will be included in your STAR Student Report, indicating how well you performed on your 11th grade standardized tests and on the EAP.
  • If you do not receive a copy of your STAR report, please see your counselor in September.
  • You can determine your EAP status through the Online EAP Status Check which is available on this website.  Test results will be available beginning in mid-September.
