Testing Criteria: To skip a grade, middle school students must take 8 tests – Math, Language Arts, Social Studies, and Science for the grade they wish to skip.

Humble ISD offers mathematics placement exams for middle school students who wish to move from their current on-level class to an honors mathematics class next year. Honors courses typically cover 11⁄2 years of material each year. In 6th grade Honors students cover all 6th grade material plus half of 7th grade material. Students in 7th grade Honors cover the other half of 7th grade material and one full year of 8th grade material.
Current 6th grade students will be required to take an exam to demonstrate mastery of half of 7th grade material so that they will be prepared for 7th grade Honors mathematics next year. Current 7th grade students will need to take two exams, one for each of the 8th grade semesters. Students must score 80% or better on each placement exam.
