Comprehensive Assessment Project


Founded in the fall of 2000, the Comprehensive Assessment Project (CAP) is the CCCU's national research consortium.  The CAP program orients CCCU members around a common set of campus assessments that are administered on a regular cycle.  CAP's common assessments provide sector norms for institutional benchmarking, while its cyclical nature empowers participating schools to examine their institutional effectiveness over time through longitudinal data analysis.
