Over 150 Credit by Exams • Texas Tech K-12 offers over 150 Credit by Exams (CBEs) to evaluate a student’s mastery of a given subject or discipline relative to Texas standards. • These exams align with Texas Essential Knowledge and Skills (TEKS) and can be used to make up a failed credit or test out of a subject they have already mastered. • Once the district purchases a CBE, it will be valid for 6 months. • Students are only allowed two attempts per CBE. After two attempts, the student must take the full course. The Set A version for the first attempt will be sent to the district. • All CBEs must be administered by an approved proctor.
