Earning College Credit
The award of college credit is not dependent upon standardized testing at the end of a course, but rather on the student's performance throughout the class and the grade he/she earns. This is known as "authentic assessment." Some high schools even offer a combined EEP/AP (Advanced Placement) class, thereby offering the opportunity to earn college credit either through authentic assessment or standardized testing.
