New EdReady Diagnostic Tool for Assigning an EFL Career READY/RISE Participating Colleges

Wednesday, May 13, 2020

Due to the COVID-19 crisis, the CCR Career READY Core Committee has developed a new EdReady diagnostic tool to assist programs in placing new students in an appropriate Educational Functioning Level (EFL). This diagnostic tool has been developed to assist Career READY/RISE participating providers. This diagnostic tool is only approved for use via the web-based platform EdReady. Any provider who uses this tool for entry EFL placement, will have to manually enter the assigned EFL into Colleague on XLEPT to avoid receiving errors generated by the flat file submission process. For scores that correlate to the correct EFL placement, providers should refer to the reference document entitled “Process for Implementation of the EdReady Alternative Assessment.” Instructions for staff are detailed below.

The diagnostic tool is not intended to be used as a pre- or post- test. It is simply a tool for providers, who are unable to use NRS approved tests, to use as a guide for determining the level of instruction that is required to facilitate learning for students served.

The information detailed in this memo is a temporary workflow developed to be used during the COVID-19 crisis. This temporary workflow has also been put in place to help providers to avoid error reports generated during the submission of the LEIS monthly flat file.
