Should you always take a CLEP test after every class your child gets an "A" in? Not necessarily. It depends on if the CLEP will help your child get into college - but there is one very important factor to consider! Here is what one mother asked:
I read on your website that your son passed the CLEP test for Biology after taking the Apologia course. My son just finished taking that class from a lady in our community and got an A. Should I be having him take that test???

My husband read that question and said, "Hey Lee! I actually KNOW the answer to this one!" LOL! He's so cute. Anyway, you can give him a CLEP test if you think a CLEP score may help him, but you want to make SURE that he can pass the test first. Give him a sample test, make sure he can get 50% or better on it. If so, then you can consider giving him the test for real. Some colleges don't accept CLEP, but I still find it a useful tool for some outside documentation for classes taught at home. Here is the website I have about using CLEP to homeschool college.
