Credit by Exam

Student Screening for Credit-by-Exam

Students in grades K-5 have four opportunities during the school year to use “credit-by-exam” to accelerate to another grade level. Students will only have one opportunity to test for each grade level considered.

To apply to take the test to skip kindergarten, a student must be 5 by September 1, and registered in a CFISD school. To apply to take the test to skip grade 1, a student must be 6 by September 1 and enrolled in a CFISD school.

Students who earn scores of 80% or better on each component of the credit-by-exam will qualify to advance one grade. Only one grade level may be “skipped” each year. No retests will be given.

Students may be tested at their campus during the week of February 22-26, 2016 to accelerated for the upcoming school year. Grade placement will be made at the beginning of the 2016-17 school year.

If you are interested in getting more information about credit-by-exam, please contact the school counselor.
