Credit by Exam

Occasionally, students demonstrate an educational need based on data (such as STAAR, state/district assessments, and previous school records) to be considered for a course or grade-level advancement. Students have the opportunity to be assessed through a Credit By Exam (CBE) process once per year if they show an educational need or by parent request. 

If a parent feels a CBE opportunity is in their child's best interest, they must discuss this with the campus counselor and/or administrators. After this, the parent/guardian should complete the Bridgeport ISD Credit by Exam Registration Form for Acceleration by the specified registration deadline.

Bridgeport ISD utilizes Texas Tech's CBEs. When a CBE is requested, the assessment is administered by district personnel within the specified assessment windows. These assessments are scored by Texas Tech and the score results are returned to the district. There is no need to study for the CBE. Students who are ready for acceleration are able to make sense of the content prior to any instruction. Click here for more information about the formatting and content of the CBE assessments
