Credit by Examination

  • Credit by Examination (without prior instruction) policy requires school districts to offer

    currently enrolled students the opportunity to test for acceleration. The District shall give a

    student in grades K-6 credit for an academic subject in which the student has received no prior

    instruction if the student scores 80% or above on a criterion-referenced test for acceleration for

    the applicable course. Tests are developed through the K-12 program of the University of Texas at Austin.


    The testing timeline follows:
