Coppell students can earn Credit by Exam

June 9, 2007

Grades K-12 Eligible

The Texas Administrative Code (TAC) requires that all school districts in Texas provide students an opportunity to  advance in elementary grades K-5 or acquire course credit in grades 6-12 through an examination process.

  • A student may advance a grade level in elementary school (K-5) by scoring 90 on each of the 4 district approved exams (Mathematics, Reading/Language Arts, Social Studies, and Science).
  • A student in grades 6-12 may obtain semester credit for any course by scoring 90 on a district approved exam which measures the TEKS for that course. Note – CBE scores are not used in the calculation of GPA’s.

Any student wishing to take a Credit By Exam (CBE) test must initiate the process by applying before the test registration deadline. The exam dates are posted on the CISD website under Curriculum and Instruction, subcategory “testing”.
