The purpose of the “test out” option is to ensure that students are placed in challenging courses, and that academically able students have the opportunity for Advanced Placement, IB, and college dual enrollment options during their high school careers.
To demonstrate mastery through the “test out” option, students must attain a grade of not less than C+ on a final exam and any other test out requirements. In the absence of a final exam, the student may be required to demonstrate mastery through the assessment process used in the course. This assessment may consist of a portfolio, written papers, projects, or presentations.
Credit earned will be recorded as a “CR” grade and will not be included in a computation of the grade point average. The West Ottawa Board of Education has determined that successfully “testing out” of a course will count toward the credit graduation requirement and will also be counted toward the fulfillment of a required course sequence.
