The Evolution of Credit-By-Examination at Moraine Valley Community College.
Allan, Henry C., Jr.
Two programs were introduced at Moraine Valley Community College (Illinois) in an effort to assess, evaluate, and assign hour equivalency credit for the non-traditional learning experiences of mature vocational and technical students. Equivalency credit was granted for performance on the College-Level Examination Program (CLEP), military service, and technical competency. A test center, open to all members of the community, was set up for the administration of CLEP exams. A seminar program was established to prepare individuals to take the examinations through directed review. Individuals qualifying on the CLEP tests could then apply to Moraine Valley or any other college or university for advanced standing. (RG)
