CISD learners may earn credit by examination for acceleration without prior instruction in the subject area or grade level being tested (EHDC Legal). This policy provides acceleration without prior instruction by grade level in grades K-5 or course credit at the secondary level (grades 6 through 12).
Exam content is based on the Texas Essential Knowledge and Skills (TEKS). To view a list of available exams, please visit the University of Texas Education Center. Please note that some exams are for credit recovery only at this time. They include English I, English II, Algebra I, U. S. History, and Biology. To view Credit by Exam review sheets, please visit the University of Texas Credit by Exam Review Sheets.
NOTE: Regardless of the date a CBE for acceleration is taken, placement in a new course will take place at the beginning of a school year, or at the semester for a semester course.
Acceleration testing is for Coppell ISD learners only. Learners not enrolled in the district prior to the registration deadline are not eligible for testing. If your child is not enrolled in Coppell ISD schools, please contact the school where your child is enrolled for possible acceleration testing through their enrolled school.
