TESTING-COMPETENCY DEMONSTRATIONThe State of Michigan mandates competency testing or “testing-out”; it allows any high school student to test-out of a course offered by their high school. Testing-out does not include an Online-class, Health or Physical Education class.


  • The State of Michigan mandates competency testing or testing out; it allows any high school student to test out of a course offered by his or her high school. Testing out is restricted to core classes only: it does not include health, physical education, or online courses.

    • Competency testing procedures are as follows:

    • Students must demonstrate mastery of course content by earning a grade of 80% or better on each component of a comprehensive final exam.

    • Successfully passing a given test results in credit being earned for that class; a grading code of “CR” is recorded on the student’s official transcript along with credit towards graduation. The grade will not be calculated in the GPA.

    • Passing a test is equal to fulfilling a requirement in a course sequence.

    • Once credit is granted by testing out, a student may not receive credit for a prerequisite course in that sequence.

    • Students considering testing out should see their school counselor.

    • Students must follow the testing out timeline established by administration.
