Testing & Evaluation: CBE


Credit-by-Exam (CBE) is a testing program offered by the Northside ISD for enrolled students in grades Kindergarten through 12. The purpose of CBE testing can be for acceleration (a student wishing to test out of a grade level or course without having had prior instruction), validation of home school or non-accredited private or public school credit when other methods are not available, or recovery of credit for a failed course.

All currently enrolled students in Northside ISD are eligible for Credit-by-Exam. However, not every student is eligible to test during every test session. Please refer to the Test Schedule to determine which dates your student is eligible to test.

Students who are not enrolled in Northside ISD are not eligible for Credit-by-Exam testing.
