CREDIT BY EXAM PROCEDURES

 

CreditbyExam (CBE) is a testing program offered by ECISD for enrolled students in grades one through grade 12.   There  are  two  reasons  for  administering  CBE  testing.   First,  a  student  may accelerate instruction or test  out  or  “skip”  a  grade  level  or  course  without  having  had  prior instruction.  Second, a student  may recover  credit  for a  course  or  grade  level if  the  student  has had prior instruction and failed. Credit by Exam  is not to be used to validate home school instruction or instruction for a non-­‐credited private or public school.   Course validation is administered at the campus level and not through Credit-­‐by-­‐Exam.

 

Students taking CBE with prior instruction must receive a 70% score or above in order to receive credit.  To obtain credit by examination without prior instruction, students must take a series of tests and must obtain a score of at least 80% on the exam.

 

Each exam will take approximately 3 hours.  For high school students, all passing grades received will appear on the transcript, but the grades do not count in calculating a student’s Grade Point Average (GPA) or class rank.

 

FEES (With Prior Instruction Only)*

Exams taken “with prior instruction” must be paid for by the student.  All fees must be paid for in advance by cash, money order, or cashier’s check and will not be refunded once the student is registered regardless of whether the student takes the exam.

 

Exams purchased from University of Texas at Austin

Students should seek guidance from their school counselor before registering for a CBE.

 

East Central offers Credit-­‐by-­‐Exam opportunities at least four times a school year.  Registration is required  at  least  three  weeks  prior  to  the  assessment  so  that  tests  can  be  ordered  and  received  in time.   Registration  forms  can  be  found  here,  or  by  calling  your  school counselor  or  the  district  assessment  office.
