Credit by Examination at the University of Texas at Austin, 1991-1992.
Mahoney, Susan S.
The Measurement and Evaluation Center coordinates credit by examination at the University of Texas at Austin. Credit earned by examination is equivalent to credit earned by taking the course, but cannot be counted as credit earned in residence. To receive credit by examination, the student must also meet all other conditions of eligibility established by the university and its departments. This report presents results of the testing programs for the April 1991 through March 1992 testing year. In this year, eight colleges or schools participated in the credit-by-examination program. Evaluations of 26,618 test scores in 48 subject areas in 31 departments or divisions are recorded, representing tests taken by 11,387 participants. Of these students, 8,008 (70 percent) earned credit for at least 1 course. In addition to departmental examinations, the university administers tests developed by the College Board to award credit, the College-Level Examination Program (CLEP) Subject Examinations, the College Board Achievement Tests, and the College Board Advanced Placement (AP) Examinations. Test results in 18 subject areas are reported alphabetically, with results from all 48 subject areas, information on the impact of the examinations on the participating schools, and comparisons with results from previous years of the credit by examination program reported in 85 tables. Five figures illustrate test results. (SLD)
