Credit By Demonstrated Mastery 
Information for Students and Parents


What is Credit By Demonstrated Mastery (CDM)?
Pursuant to State Board Policy CCRE-OO1, Credit By Demonstrated Mastery is the process by which each school district must award students credit for a course without requiring the student to complete the classroom instruction or enroll in the course.  In other words, CDM allows students with deep understanding of the content prior to taking the course, to receive a course credit. The intention of this policy is to enable students to access more advanced content to meet their academic needs.
