Test Out exams are a method by which students may gain required or additional credit by demonstrating
mastery of course content by successfully completing written exams and additionally in some cases,
performances, portfolios or oral examinations. Test Outs are available for any course offered by
Dearborn Public Schools. Students must score 78% or higher on an exam to receive transcript credit.
School counselors can offer guidance to students on course selection and test registration. Test Out
exams are offered twice a year, generally in December and May/June.
