College-Level Academic Skills Test (CLAST)

College-Level Academic Skills Test (CLAST)

About the CLAST

The College-Level Academic Skills Test (CLAST) was administered from October 1982 to June 2009 to students seeking associate in arts (AA), bachelor of arts (BA), or bachelor of science (BS) degree from a Florida public college or university. The CLAST was one way students could demonstrate proficiency of the College-Level Academic Skills (CLAS) set.

The CLAST was part of Florida's system of educational accountability that satisfied the mandates of Section 1008.29, F.S. The CLAST was an achievement test that measured students' attainment of the college-level communication and mathematics skills that were identified by the faculties of community colleges and state universities through the College-Level Academic Skills Project (CLASP). The skills were adopted by the SBE and are listed in Rule 6A-10.0316, FAC.

The CLAST consisted of four subtests: essay, English language skills (ELS), reading, and mathematics. Each subtest yielded a single score that was reported to the student and to the institution requested by the student.
