On Friday, April 13 all seniors will participate in the College Work and Readiness Assessment (CWRA+). The CWRA+ is designed by some of the nation's leading psychometricians to assist high schools and colleges in the process of ascertaining how well students are able to think critically, problem-solve, use scientific and quantitative reasoning, critique and make arguments, and write. The CWRA+ requires 90 minutes, utilizes Performance Tasks, and is delivered online.
Students will sit the CWRA+ in either the Library or Day Hall Mac Lab and will be excused from morning or afternoon classes in order to sit for the assessment. To view the current administration schedule with individual student dates and locations, click here

York utilizes the CWRA+ as an internal diagnostic instrument: We reflect upon student results and consider opportunities for growth in teaching and learning. Student performance on the CWRA+ will not impact course grades, nor will individual results be shared with any colleges or universities. It is not necessary for students to study in preparation for the CWRA+. Nevertheless, we do ask students to approach the assessment with focus and sincerity.
