Multiple Measures Placement Service Ready for Adoption

The California Community Colleges Multiple Measures Placement Service (MMPS) was built to assist with student transcript data integration and placement recommendations, and it is now ready for colleges to begin implementation.

MMPS addresses Assembly Bill 705, which mandates that California’s community colleges incorporate multiple high school transcript-based data points in determining English and math placements to increase students’ probability of completing transfer-level courses within one year. It is the result of a statewide collaboration between the California Community Colleges Board of Governors, Chancellor’s Office, colleges across the system and partners including the California College Guidance Initiative, Educational Results Partnership and the California Department of Education.

Benefits of MMPS:

  • Provides near-real-time recommended support for AB 705-compliant English and math placements, including higher level math placements into trigonometry, pre-calculus and calculus, when applicable. Colleges determine final recommendation policies and processes for their students.
  • Accesses multiple sources of verified high school transcript information, as well as self-reported data from CCCApply.
  • Integrates with other CCC Technology Center applications, including CCCApply and Data Lake/Warehouse. Future integration with CCC MyPath will give colleges the ability to recommend courses to students.
  • Minimizes colleges’ total cost of ownership (no licensing fees) through easy implementation and maintenance.

A series of webinars was held in April and May explaining how MMPS can help colleges meet AB 705 requirements, and how to begin service adoption ahead of the fall 2019 legislative compliance deadline.
