Best Practice Examples

Include the ESAP-A/B® pre- and post-test delivery modality by partnering with EI Learning Systems to put the assessments on your college or university’s campus computer system for college success and other students.  Partnering in this way allows the college to easily pull ESAP® data for research, and provides nearly automatic access to related demographic data and relevant success criteria research, such as grades.   Galveston College and  McLennan Community College uses the ESAP® dimensions to help define their QEP.   South Texas College and others used and/or still use the ESAP® for building a culture of student success in courses, developmental education, and faculty, staff, and leadership training.


The ESAP-A® and ESAP-B® sell for $5.00 each (education professionals and education institution pricing).  When purchased for delivery in pre- and post-test pairs, the pair of instruments are offered for $7.50 (savings of $2.50 over individual purchasing). Currently available in paper and pencil only, so printing, handling, shipping, and state sales taxes may apply.
