 Guidance and Webinar regarding “testing out” from the SBOE Rule 160-5-1-.15 Awarding Units of Credit

An important memorandum entitled “Guidance Letter – Subject Area Competency (“Testing Out”) to Receive Course Credit Using the End of Course Tests (EOCT)” has been posted to the Georgia Department of Education website in two locations.

Please see below:

This memorandum provides information regarding the opportunity for students to receive course credit by demonstrating subject area competency through the End of Course Tests (EOCT) as provided for in amendments to State Board of Education Rule 160-5-1-.15 (AWARDING UNITS OF CREDIT AND ACCEPTANCE OF TRANSFER CREDIT AND/OR GRADES) adopted by the Board in April 2013.


This new opportunity for students becomes available in August 2013. In follow-up to the posting of this memo, we will also be hosting a webinar as noted below to review the contents of the letter and other related information. We are hopeful that you can attend the session. If not, it will be recorded and that link is below as well.
