Authentic Assessments to Answer Your Questions

CAE’s CLA+ and CCRA+ are comprised of a 60-minute performance task and a 30-minute selected response section delivered online through CAE’s integrated Next Step platform. The assessments can be used in class, with remote proctoring, or any combination.  Assessments can be scheduled in as little as 2 weeks with results provided shortly after the assessments are completed.  Reports can be aggregated for grade, building and district reporting.
