ESSA is designed to test the learning goals of an introductory probability and statistics course that is geared toward economics students. It is composed of 20 multiple-choice questions, and students may refer to a provided formula sheet during the test. ESSA has been piloted inside and outside Cornell.

ESSA is also our first assessment that is available in Spanish, thanks to the work of Santiago Bohórquez Correa at Universidad EAFIT in Medellín, Colombia.
