OPPORTUNITIES TO "TEST OUT OF CLASSES" DURING THE SUMMER
Posted on 03/30/2021
.

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 subject, the student must answer 80% of the test 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, and they target all the objectives for the courses covered.
 
Credit by Examination assessments will be administered in Victoria through Region 3 ESC on June 23rd, June 24th, and 25th, 2021, and again on July 14th, 15th, and 16th, 2021, from 9:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. on each date. Credit by Exam registration applications may be picked up from the counselor at your student’s school. Seats for these exams are limited, so please do not delay. 

LOTE (Languages other than English) assessments will not be administered by Region 3 ESC this year. However, students can sign up to take these assessments through another entity. Please contact your student’s school counselor for more information and a registration application. There are no fees to take these exams.  

THE DEADLINE TO SUBMIT REGISTRATION FORMS TO THE CAMPUS COUNSELOR IS MAY 17, 2021.
