Credit by Exam
Credit-by-Exam (CBE) is a testing program offered by NEISD for students enrolled in grades kindergarten through grade 12. There are two reasons for administering CBE testing. First, a student may accelerate instruction or test out of a grade level or course without having had prior instruction. Second, a student may recover credit for a course or grade level if the student has had prior instruction and failed, provided there are extenuating circumstances. Credit by Exam is not to be used to validate home school instruction or instruction from a non-accredited private or public school. Course Validation is administered at the campus level and not through Credit by Exam.
