Assessment for Acceleration
For elementary students, it is recommended that students be tested in the summer so that no instruction is missed if a grade is skipped. A student in any of Grades 1-5 may be accelerated one grade if he or she meets the following requirements:
- The student scores 80% on the CBE assessment for the grade level he or she wants to skip in each of the following areas: language arts, mathematics, science, and social studies;
- A campus/district representative recommends that the student be accelerated; and
- The student's parent or guardian gives written approval for the acceleration.
For example, a student that finished third grade and took and successfully completed all four CBE core subject exams at or above the 80th percentile would qualify to enter the fifth grade the next school year.
