Credit by Examination

 

Winfree Academy students may apply to take Credit By Examination (CBE’s) for acceleration or remedial purposes. A credit by Examination (s) is a comprehensive exam that covers the content of an entire course. Students may be able to earn credit in specific courses by passing approved examinations for acceleration and/or remedial purposes as stated by TAC 74.24. These exams may be provided by WACS or Texas Tech University.
 
Without Prior Instruction: Acceleration

 

Acceleration may be defined as any student wanting to advance to a higher grade level by earning credit for a course that the student has received no prior instruction.

 

Passing Standards are 90 % or better to receive credit

 

With Prior Instruction: Remediation

 

Remediation may be defined as any student wanting to advance to a higher grade level by earning credit for a course that the student has received prior instruction, but did not meet the passing standard or attendance requirements (which may be decided by the Attendance Review Committee).

 

Passing Standards are 70 % or better to receive credit
