A possible method of earning credit toward high school graduation is for a student to take a comprehensive exam that covers the information for a particular course.
If a student scores 90% or above (or 70% if the student has taken the course before) on the credit-by-exam (CBE), credit toward high school graduation is awarded. Typically, there is one exam per semester (A for first semester, B for second) so that each exam earns 0.5 credit.
Expenses and the arrangements for the process for any Credit-by-Exam are the responsibility of the student/parent. Credit is granted by Chaparral Star Academy upon receipt of official final grade.
Exams are administered on campus, unless the student requests to take the exam on campus (e.g. UT-Austin). Once the exam has been ordered, students should contact Mr. B to schedule an available 3-hour block for administration. CBE’s do have an expiration date, so please be aware of this when ordering (typically 60 days from date of order).
