The Early Assessment Program (EAP) measures your English and math skills towards the end of the 11th grade to let you know in advance if you are ready for college. This assessment portion of the EAP is officially called the Early Assessment of Readiness for College English and for College Mathematics, but it is also commonly referred to as the EAP English Test and the EAP Math Test.
The EAP consists of two parts:
- Early Assessment of Readiness for College English (15 additional items and a 45-minute essay)
- Early Assessment of Readiness for College Mathematics (15 additional items)
If you elect to take the EAP test, you will receive a letter at the beginning of your senior year informing you whether or not you can enroll in for-credit freshman English classes when you attend the California State University or a participating California Community College.
