Determining CLEP Credit

For determining test-related CLEP credits, here are three big ideas to help:

1. Ask the university where you hope to attend and give 1 high school credit per class they equate to that CLEP.
2. Look at the "Sample CLEP Policy" from the CollegeBoard to estimate credits.  Each equivalent college class could be one high school credit:
3. Remember, it all depends on where  you end up, and the CLEP policy for that university.

Colleges each have their own policy about CLEP. Find out what your first choice college wants, and then GIVE them what they want to the best of your ability. In the meantime, when you homeschool independently, you can teach a class in your own way. You can evaluate in your own way.  You can teach the content of a CLEP exam, and then evaluate the success of your class with a CLEP exam and use the CLEP to determine high school credits.The outside documentation of the CLEP test can demonstrate that your child knows the material.
