Credit by Examination Summer 2012 Dates Set
Clear Creek ISD is offering opportunities this summer for students to gain credit by examination. Exams are available for kindergarten acceleration, all grade levels 1-8 and selected TEKS-based courses in grades 9-12. The purpose of credit by exam is to allow a student to accelerate and earn credit without formal instruction in that course or grade. The student must score a minimum of 87 for the required tests taken for the appropriate course/grade the student wants to skip.
Test dates have been set for June 5-7 and July 10-12. Please contact the counselor at the student’s school to determine if that student qualifies for credit by exam.
Students interested in participating in the credit by examination program should pick up a registration form from the counselor’s office at their school. Return registration forms to the counselor’s office at their school no later than 3:00 PM on April 20, 2012 (June session) or May 25, 2012 (July session).
Students who choose to fulfill course requirements through CBE for the core content courses listed below must also achieve at least the minimum required score on the corresponding STAAR End of Course Exam(s):
Algebra I, Geometry, Algebra II English I, English II, English III, Biology, Chemistry, Physics World Geography, World History, U.S. History
