TIME REQUIREMENTS: College BASE takes approximately four hours to complete (including time for instructions, the writing exercise, a break, and the multiple choice questions). You should arrive at the test site 20-30 minutes prior to the testing time. Late arrivals will not be admitted.
TEST PREPARATION: Questions on the College BASE reflect the broad range of knowledge that most universities and colleges expect their students to acquire by the end of the sophomore year. As a broad-based achievement test, College BASE assesses basic and enduring knowledge in each of the four subject areas and provides performance rankings in higher order thinking skills (interpretive, strategic, and adaptive reasoning abilities.) Students who have successfully completed a general education degree should be able to pass the test without study. However, a study guide is available at all Crowder campuses or click here.
SCORE REPORTS: Individual score reports will be sent to each student and to the student’s enrollment institution usually within 4-5 weeks of the end of each testing window. According to policy established by the State Board of Education, students have two years from the semester when they first pass part(s of College BASE to achieve passing status in all five parts. Students who do not complete the College BASE requirement within two years lose their passing status in all areas passed and must retake the entire examination. Scores are not given verbally over the phone.
CUT-OFF SCORES: The State Board of Education established cut-off scores on College BASE of 235 or higher in each of the four subjects covered by College BASE (English, mathematics, science, and social studies) and in the writing cluster within English (Rule 5 CSR 80-805.020). Some institutions may establish higher standards for their students.
