Credit By Exam

Credit by Examination (CBE)

Winfree Academy students may apply to take CBEs 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
