The Office of Assessment is offering freshman and senior students a chance to earn a $25 QuikTrip gift card or $25 in Shocker Dollars if they complete the Collegiate Learning Assessment (CLA) through Dec. 17. The CLA is a 90-minute open-ended assessment. Why Take the CLA? The CLA is good practice for test-taking for graduate school entrance exams, including Graduate Record Examinations. Students can add it to their résumé. Some students say the CLA is fun because the questions are unlike those on typical tests. The CLA represents WSU in comparison to other schools. Students can receive a score report that compares them to other seniors at colleges and universities nationwide and with other seniors at WSU. The CLA can influence teaching at WSU for years to come.
