CLEVELAND, OH (WOIO) -

Students going to college take a variety of tests every year.   

Now, yet another test will be added for students. 

Next spring, 200 colleges across the country are going to launch a new test for college students nearing graduation.

It's called a college exit exam.

The test is designed to help employers determine a student's real value in the workplace.

The "Collegiate Learning Assessment' will assess critical thinking, reasoning, literacy, writing and communication.

The idea is to give a better picture of a student's overall skills, beyond the students GPA.
