What is the CLA+ and what does it measure?

M State is committed to supporting students who choose to participate in up2U. To a greater or lesser extent, the courses in which students are enrolled support the core competencies valued by M State and measured by the CLA+. To reinforce students' coursework learning, the college offers performance task workshops which provide additional practice and instruction in mastering the core skills assessed by the CLA+. These skills, which prepare students for success at the university level and in the workplace, include critical thinking, problem solving, analytical reasoning and effective writing.

Learn more about the up2U program by completing an interest form.


 

Why does it matter how I do on the CLA+?

Scholarships awarded by Up2U partner universities are based on cumulative GPA and competencies demonstrated on the CLA+ performance tasks.

 

How many times do I have to take the CLA+?

Up2U students take the CLA+ performance task assessment upon entry to M State (at 0 credits), at midpoint (between 18-36 credits) and during their last semester.

 

Will M State help me prepare for the CLA+?

To reinforce students' coursework learning, M State offers performance task workshops which provide additional practice and instruction in mastering the core skills assessed by the CLA+. Visit the up2U Student Information Page for workshop dates and times.
