Starting in 2015 students can earn Credit by Demonstrated Mastery (CDM)
. This is an option which allows students to earn credit for a course without spending a set number of hours taking the course in a classroom. CDM allows students to demonstrate mastery and a deep understanding of a course’s content by taking a single assessment and completing an artifact. CDM credits are awarded as a pass/fail grade and therefore do not impact a student’s grade point average. No course grade is received and the course is not included in the GPA calculation. If you would like more information about the application process and eligibility rules click here
, or use the "Academics"
tab above and select Credit by Demonstrated Mastery
Students who are applying to colleges and working towards athletic scholarships with the NCHSAA should investigate the acceptance of CDM credits by these organizations.
