Testing/Assessment Credit by Exam

Credit By Exam

September 26th, 2018

Credit-by-Exam (CBE) is a testing program offered by Pearsall ISD for enrolled students in grades Pre-Kindergarten through 12. The purpose of CBE testing can be for acceleration (a student wishing to test out of a grade level or course without having had prior instruction) or recovery (a student wishing to receive credit for a failed course).

Kindergarten acceleration requires a student to test in Reading and approval from a committee. Grades 1-8 acceleration requires a student to test in all four core areas: ELAR, Math, Science, and Social Studies. In grades 9-12, students are allowed to test in only the particular course they are attempting to accelerate past. In addition, students in grades 6-12 may recover credit for a particular course through CBE.

The documents below are PISD's CBE procedures, upcoming dates, and application.
Pearsall ISD uses the University of Texas assessments for Credit by Exam. For the Course listing and study guides, please see the links here:
