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 Advanced Placement (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 I:   A standard examination
-End of Course (EOC) Exam – Level V
-Career and Technical Education (CTE) Post Assessment – 90% or better
-Non-EOC/CTE Assessment – 90% or better (effective 2016-17 school year)

Phase II:  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.
