Test Out Information

  • In accordance with the Michigan Merit Curriculum Law 380.1278(a)(4)(c), Haslett High School will grant credit to students who earn a qualifying score of no less than 78% on a “test-out” assessment developed by the particular curricular department for a Michigan Merit Curriculum course.  In accordance with Michigan Law 380.1279(b), the Haslett School Board will also grant credit to students who are not enrolled in a course but who exhibit mastery of the subject matter of the course by attaining a grade of not less than 78% on a final exam or by exhibiting that mastery through the basic assessment used in the course which may consist of a portfolio, paper, project, or presentation as developed by the particular department for a Michigan Merit curriculum course.  This credit,  expressed as an “I” for “tested out for credit,” will be recorded on the student’s high school transcript and will be counted toward high school credit. 

    Note that by “testing out” of a course, a student will miss participation in discussions, classroom activities, and other opportunities to develop the skills that are nurtured by daily contact with the teacher and fellow students.  Testing out requires that you put in the necessary time and effort to study and learn the content material.  Last summer, approximately 15% of the tests attempted were successful. If you have questions, please contact your counselor or the Associate Principal.

    Test out dates 2024: Tuesday, August 6 and Thursday, August 8.
