What is Credit by Assessment?

Credit by Assessment is an opportunity for students to bypass a required course because they have already mastered the material. Students may have acquired that knowledge through extracurricular activities, activities outside of school, previous learning, or community and work experiences. 

Students are given an opportunity to demonstrate their mastery through Credit by Assessment.  If the students successfully pass the assessment, they can select a more academically appropriate course option.

It is important to know that this opportunity was not created as a vehicle for advancement by independent study, but rather as a process to grant credits for students new to the school district or to grant credits for expertise through other means of learning.
