The state's education law, the Texas Administrative Code (TAC), will allow Rice CISD public school students to obtain credit in a course or grade level by passing tests approved by school district trustees. Texas law, 19 TAC Chapter 74, allows students to "Test out of a course" by taking a "Credit by Examination" without prior instruction in the course(s) being tested. To earn credit for a grade or a subject the student must answer 80% of the questions correctly. In accordance with local school district policy, a student in any of Grades 6-12 may be given credit for an academic subject in which he or she had some prior instruction, if the student scores 70% on the test. The tests are rigorous, targeting all the objectives for the courses covered.
The tests will be administered in Victoria through Region 3 Education Service Center on June 22nd, 23rd, and 24th, 2022 and again on July 13th, 14th, and 16th, 2022 from 9:00 a.m.-4:00 p.m. on each date. Registration applications may be picked up on your campus counselor's offices during the month of May. Deadline for registration is May 25th. There are no fees or costs to take the tests.
