More About AB 705

A new law has gone into effect that changes placement into English and math courses for all California Community Colleges. View Assembly Bill  

  • AB 705 (Irwin, 2017) is a law that requires California Community Colleges to maximize the probability that students will enter and complete transfer-level coursework in English and math within one year. 
  • The law is based on years of research that shows that high school performance information is the best predictor of course completion and success compared to standardized placement exams. 
  • In fact, students are more likely to complete transfer-level English and math courses when placed into them directly. View research
