Helps Community College Instructors to Improve Instruction
Before CalPASS, instructors at community colleges often suffered from a lack of information about the abilities their students possessed upon entering their classroom. Now community college instructors can examine the data and trends, ascertaining the abilities their incoming students possess. This allows community college instructors to tailor their instruction to the specific strengths and weaknesses of their students.
