Credit by Exam
Students get 6 chances during summer to “Test out of Classes”
The State’s education law, the Texas Administrative Code (TAC), will allow Hallettsville 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 being tested. To earn credit for a grade or a subject the student must answer 90 percent of the questions correctly. In accordance with local school district policy, a student in any of 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 percent on the test. The tests are rigorous, targeting all the objectives for the courses covered.
The tests will be administered in Victoria through Region III Education Service Center on June 26, 27 and 28, 2014 and again on July 9, 10, and 11, 2014 from 9:00 a.m. – 4:00 p.m. on each date. Registration applications may be picked up in the Counselors’ offices. Deadline for registration is May 16, 2014. There are no fees or costs to take the tests.
