The Ruffalo (CSI) College Student Inventory, is a questionnaire required for incoming students. The results are used as a tool for discussion with your advisor. It is part of a multiple measures approach.
Under a multiple measures approach, standardized testing is no longer the primary means of assessing if a student is prepared for college-level coursework. Aims uses multiple measures to determine college-readiness, rather than sole reliance on Accuplacer testing.
