NC DEMOSTRATED MASTERY OPTION

North Carolina’s New Credit by Demonstrated Mastery (CDM) Option for Students

Starting in 2015, students will be able to earn credit for a course without spending a set number of hours taking the course in a classroom.

Under the state’s new Credit by Demonstrated Mastery (CDM) option, uniquely qualified students may “test out” or bypass a course if they have already mastered the content.

The program provides another opportunity for students to learn new content, to challenge themselves with the next level of rigor in a subject, and even graduate early. This option is not designed to replace existing accelerated pathways, such as the Academically and Intellectually Gifted (AIG) program at WCPSS.
