What are

Multiple Measures

Multiple measures are the use of multiple indicators to measure student learning. This data is collected at multiple points in time and is examined within and across subject areas. Here, colleges incorporate two or more criteria for assessment and placement. Examples of multiple measures include high school or college transcripts, attitude surveys and interviews. 

Multiple measures are the use of more than one assessment measure to assess a student’s abilities. Multiple measures should include not just student learning, but demographics, perceptions and school processes as well. Student learning describes the results of the education system with respect to its standardized test results and students’ GPAs. Demographic data refers to metrics regarding a school’s enrollment, attendance, grade level, ethnicity, gender and native language, while perception refers to what students, parents and teachers think about a learning environment.
