There are two math CLEP Tests, college algebra and college mathematics. You can read more about those tests on the College Board website here: https://clep.collegeboard.org/science-and-mathematics
And this is my article that compares the different kinds of subject tests.
Instead of CLEP (where you're not sure you'll pass, but you still have to pay every test), you can do ALEKS. It's $20/mo or $100/yr and it transfers over to most schools directly via ACE. The students have to work the problems until they can pass the assessment at 70%. It's tough, but they actually learn the material. Most schools accept College Algebra, Trig, Pre-Calc, Statistics, and Business Statistics. If your student works hard and is math-inclined, it's not unreasonable to pass 3 or more in a year.
