Testing Out

Howell High School

Testing Out Guidelines and Procedures for August 2022

According to the Michigan Merit Curriculum Law, Section 380.1278(a)(4)(c), "a school district or public school academy shall also grant a student credit if the student earns a qualifying score, as determined by the department, on the assessments developed or selected for the subject area by the department or the student earns a qualifying score, as determined by the school district or public school academy, on 1 or more assessments developed or selected by the school district or public school academy that measure a student's understanding of the subject area content expectations or guidelines that apply to the credit."

Students are required to earn a grade of 77% or higher on the test-out exam in order to earn credit for the course.  Students who already have credit in a class cannot test out of it. Failure to earn a 77% or better will not be reflected on the transcript. Students are expected to take both the midterm and final exams in order to receive credit (1.0) for a full year course and should plan on testing during two test sessions or staying longer than the scheduled time. Students taking the midterm and final exams may take a break between tests.  Students are welcome to bring QUIET snacks to eat while testing

Students should sign up to test out of a course in their current school’s Counseling Office through June 2.  Students may sign up through June 10 in both the Freshman Campus(FC) or High School 10-12 Main Office.
