Whereas, Over 140 English, mathematics, English as a Second Language, and reading faculty from across the state created rubrics to describe the skills required in courses below transfer level;
Whereas, These rubrics have been vetted by over 200 faculty in those disciplines and by discipline professional organizations; and
Whereas, These rubrics will be used to provide guidance to local colleges to correctly code courses below transfer level, and this improved coding will, in turn, improve the accuracy of the Accountability Reporting for Community Colleges (ARCC) data reported to the Legislature and public about basic skills;
Resolved, That the Academic Senate for California Community Colleges approve these rubrics and endorse their use as guidelines for local college CB21 coding.
*Coding courses below transfer level to track student progression is known as CB 21 coding
