CLA trend analyses: 2007-08 through 2013-14
Given the differences between the original CLA and the CLA+ administered during the 2013-14 academic year, trend analyses can only be conducted on the Total CLA (later Total CLA+) score and the Performance Task score. Comparisons across time between Nicholls and national freshmen and seniors on these two measures can be found in the chart below.
