Multiple Measures Placement Service

Multiple Measures Placement ServiceThe Multiple Measures Placement Service (MMPS) is designed to help California’s community colleges maximize the probability a student will complete transfer-level English and math courses within one year, as required by Assembly Bill 705.

MMPS consolidates student transcript data from multiple sources and runs it through rules engines to provide colleges with relevant data for English and math placement. Colleges determine final recommendation policies and processes for their students.

MMPS is the result of a statewide collaboration between the California Community Colleges Board of Governors, the Chancellor’s Office, colleges across the system, and partners including California College Guidance Initiative and Educational Results Partnership.

Benefits of MMPS

  • Provides near-real-time recommended support for AB 705-compliant math and English placements.
  • Accesses multiple sources of verified high school transcript information, as well as self-reported data from CCCApply.
  • Furnishes higher level math placements into Trigonometry, Pre-Calculus, and Calculus, when applicable.
  • Integrates with other CCC Technology Center applications, including CCCApply and Data Lake/Warehouse. Future integration with CCC MyPath will give colleges the ability to recommend courses to students.
  • Ease of implementation and maintenance minimizes total cost of ownership for colleges (No licensing fees).

Course Identification (C-ID)

The Course Identification Numbering Systems known as C-ID helps colleges simplify the access and sharing of information pertaining to transfer and articulation within the CCC and CSU/UC systems.

By identifying and organizing transfer-relevant courses, C-ID eases staff workloads and removes a barrier to student success. The system also serves as a hub for articulation agreements between California schools, and across statewide systems.

Curriculum Inventory (COCI)

Chancellor's Office Curriculum Inventory (COCI) System serves as the central database for all California Community Colleges (CCC) course information. Colleges use COCI to submit new or notably changed courses and programs for approval. The application uses unique Course Control Numbers to identify and track course information.

COCI provides transparent, role-based workflows to assist in regulatory and policy planning. The system also supports efforts like the CCC MyPath project, as well as educational planning and career and program guidance.
