TISD Offers Acceleration Exams

The purpose of examination for acceleration is to allow a student to accelerate and earn credit for a particular course or grade level without formal instruction in that course or grade level. The student must score a minimum of 80% on the required tests for the course or grade level the student wants to accelerate. Elementary students must earn at least 80% on each grade-level exam (English language arts/reading, math, science, and social studies) to accelerate. Any TISD student is eligible to participate in testing without charge at the time of the regularly scheduled administration.
