Credit by Exam (CBE)
Credit by Exam (CBE) is a testing program offered by Irving ISD for enrolled students in grades Kindergarten through 12. The purpose of CBE testing can be for acceleration (a student wishing to test out of a grade level or course without having had prior instruction) or recovery of credit (for a failed course). There is no CBE to skip pre-kindergarten.
***CBE to skip kindergarten is only available during the May/June administration.***
