Credit by Exam Information

  • Testing for Credit by Examination in Humble ISD occurs 4 times per year.  If you are interested in CBE for your child please complete the Credit By Examination Registration Form and submit it to the counselor.  Please be mindful of the registration deadlines listed below. 

    Testing Criteria: To skip a grade, elementary students must take 4 tests and middle school students must take 8 tests – Math, Language Arts, Social Studies, and Science for the grade they wish to skip. A score of 80% is required on all tests for the student to be eligible to skip the grade. Students are allowed 3 hours for each test although they rarely use that much time. Parents should be available on testing days so they can be reached if students finish early.

    Math- 6th grade CBE Only: Humble ISD offers mathematics placement exams for middle school students who wish to move from their current on-level class to a pre-ap mathematics class next year. Middle school pre-ap courses typically cover 1½ years of material each year. In 6th grade pre-ap mathematics students cover all 6th grade material plus half of 7th grade material. Students in 7th grade pre-ap cover the other half of 7th grade material and one full year of 8th grade material.  Students must score 80% or better on each placement exam in order to excellerate.
