Credit by Exam (CBE) Testing

  • Credit by Exam (CBE) Testing

    Aledo ISD will provide Credit by Examination (CBE) without prior instruction for the purpose of course acceleration provided the following criteria have been met:

    • Students must be enrolled in Aledo ISD to be eligible for CBEs
    • Completed registration form submitted to campus Principal or CBE designee by the scheduled registration deadline - late registration is not available
    • Student may not have attempted CBE more than twice in the same subject
    • Student must have passed and received scores from previous course to schedule the next course (IE: pass Math 7A/7B before registering to take Math 8A/8B)
    • Based on District policy, only exams administered by the District will be considered for credit

    The following EOC subjects are not available for CBE for acceleration: Algebra I, Biology, English I, English II, and US History.

    Testing is offered at no cost to the student. However, failure to report for testing session(s) will result in the parent reimbursing Aledo ISD for the cost of the exam(s). Testing is conducted in 3-hour sessions, one in the morning and one in the afternoon. Students are limited to one exam per session.
