Charter

The Assessment Advisory Committee conducts the review of assessment instruments submitted by colleges and test publishers for Chancellor’s Office approval. The committee works with the Chancellor’s Office and psychometric consultants for the Chancellor’s Office, who conduct the psychometric review of assessment instruments and provide other technical expertise as required. The committee then advises the Chancellor’s Office on assessments presented for approval and provides recommendations regarding those approvals.
