Credit by Demonstrated Mastery (CDM) Application Deadline: January 31, 2023

CDM is an acceleration opportunity for students who possess the skills to show mastery in the content of a course that they have not yet taken. Credit by Demonstrated Mastery is a two-phase process:


  • Phase I: Establishes that a student has a strong foundational knowledge of a subject area, assessed through an End of Course test or exam. The student must achieve a Level 5 on the EOC/state assessment or 90% correct on the local exam, then the student may move on to Phase II.


  • Phase II. Establishes that a student can demonstrate and apply mastery knowledge of the course content. A student must provide an assigned artifact assessed by a school review team in order to achieve credit for the course.


To CDM a course, students must complete the CDM Application and submit it to Mrs. Crudeli @ or the office. The Spring Semester 2023 CDM Application is due January 31, 2023. The timeline for the Spring CDM process is listed below.
