The College Aptitude & Readiness Exam C.A.R.E.

  • The CARE diagnostic assessments measure multiple competencies and deliver per competency resources via McCann’s patented targeted search engine. Resources include Kahn Academy, Purdue Owl, and Yale Open Courses.
  • CARE writing response assessments are scored via IntelliMetric®, the most advanced automated essay scoring engine. IntelliMetric is used to score high stakes assessments including the Graduate Management Admission Council and Higher Education publishers including Cengage Learning and McGraw Hill license IntelliMetric in their proprietary platforms. The CARE writing response assessments can be used for placement decisions, benchmark assessments of writing proficiency, and curricular support.

With the data collected through all CollegeSuccess placement tests, administrators can accurately place students in courses suited to their skill sets or track their “readiness” for college-level coursework.

The CARE assessments are delivered via the CollegeSuccess platform.
