The state’s education law, the Texas Administrative Code (TAC), allows Calhoun County ISD public school students to obtain credit in a course or grade level by passing tests approved by school district trustees. Texas law, 19 TAC Chapter 74, allows students to "test out of a course" by taking a “Credit by Examination" without prior instruction in the course(s) being tested. To earn credit for a grade or a subject, the student must answer 80% of the questions correctly. In accordance with local school district policy, a student in Grades 6-12 may be given credit for an academic subject in which he or she had some prior instruction if the student scores 70% on the assessment. These tests are rigorous, targeting all the objectives for the courses covered.

Credit by Examination assessments will be administered in Victoria through Region 3 ESC on June 19th, 20th, and 21st, 2019, and again on July 10th, 11th, and 12th, 2019 from 9:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. on each date. Credit by Exam registration applications may be picked up from the campus counselor at your school. The counselor can also answer any questions you may have. There are no fees or costs to take the tests.

THE DEADLINE TO SUBMIT REGISTRATION FORMS TO THE CAMPUS COUNSELOR IS MAY 17, 2019.
