Credit by Examination (Without Prior Instruction)
Clear Creek ISD offers opportunities during the 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 11-13 and July 9-11. 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 19, 2013 (June session) or May 24, 2013 (July session).
Students who choose to fulfill course requirements through credit by examination 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).
