• Credit by Demonstrated Mastery (CDM)
    Beginning with the 2014-2015 school year, Credit by Demonstrated Mastery (CDM) is a new option for obtaining high school course credit for standard level courses (honors level and AP level courses are excluded) in North Carolina. CDM is the process by which a local school system shall, based upon a body-of-evidence, award a student credit in a particular high school course without requiring the student to complete classroom instruction.
    To earn credit for a high school course and by-pass the seat time requirements, students shall demonstrate mastery for the course through a two-phase process:
    Phase 1: A standard examination
    · EOC Exam – Level 5
    · CTE Post Assessment – 93% or better
    · Non-EOC/CTE Assessment – 94% or better
    Phase 2: An artifact
    · A project that demonstrates the student’s deep understanding of the content standards
    · Artifacts of any type may be assigned – ranging from three-dimensional to paper-based to electronic to oral interviews
