State of Michigan and District Test-Out Guidelines
State of Michigan Test-Out Guidelines allow school districts to grant high school credit for any course offered by the school district provided the student attains a grade of C+ (78%) on a comprehensive exam that covers the subject area content expectations for that course. A student may also be required to demonstrate mastery of the subject area by a performance exam, portfolio, project, or presentation. (Such courses as Physical Education, Auto Mechanics, Computer Applications and Fundamental Foods include a performance component in which the student demonstrates basic skills in the subject area.) The Testing-Out exams administered by Dearborn Public Schools have been created to meet State Guidelines. The exams cover the entire course content that the student would see in a regular high school course. The exams are designed to be comprehensive and rigorous. Students who do not have a complete understanding of the course content should not attempt the Testing-Out exam because they are unlikely to pass. School counselors will advise student of these requirements during the registration process. If a student earns Testing-Out credit for a course, the student may not receive credit thereafter for a course lower in sequence in the same subject area. For example, a student who receives Testing-Out credit for an Arabic 2 course, may not subsequently test-out, or receive credit for an Arabic 1 course. The District administers Test-Outs twice a year, once in the first semester and once in the second semester. Testing-Out dates are published at the beginning of the school year. These Test-Out sessions are divided into World Language Test-Outs (administered at ASC) and Core Subjects (administered at the high schools). Students new to the district are also allowed to Test-Out at the beginning of the school year in World Languages and Algebra 1.) Many of the Testing-Out exams are administered on-line. If the exam includes a listening component (such as World Language exams) students are allowed to bring their own headphones, or headphones will be provided. If a calculator is required (such as with Math and Science exams) students are allowed to bring their own calculators, or a calculator will be provided. Students are required to show proper ID before entering the testing area. Students arriving late will not be permitted to test. Middle School students are allowed to Test-Out of any high school class, but students Testing-Out of Algebra 1 or Geometry must earn credit for both Semester 1 and Semester 2 at one testing session. If a student does not earn credit for both semesters and takes the Test-Out exam at a subsequent testing session, the student must take both semesters and earn credit for each exam.
