The CLA+ is an instrument that measures the PEAK skills we value and provides an estimate of the gains between entry and senior year. It attempts to serve as a proxy for the institutional impact on student growth. A score above 1.00 is particularly strong with seniors out performing other seniors from other schools with similar entering characteristics. At the College of Idaho, all four categories contributing to the overall Value Added Estimate reveal positive growth since 2008 with all categories reporting Near or Above the expected performance since 2010.
