(7) Credit-by-Examination as Seen by Secondary School Teachers and Coordinators of Accountability in Florida

G. Emerson Tully
State University System of Florida

Abstract: A sample of secondary school teachers, and most of the district coordinators for testing and evaluation in Florida, responded to a series of questionnaires designed to obtain their views concerning the awarding of college level course credit as the result of achieving a designated cutoff score on an examination. Descriptive brochures for the College Level Examination Program (CLEP) and the Advanced Placement Pro- gram (APP) were included with the questionnaires for review by tile survey participants. Questionnaire analyses revealed that there is considerable support for the concept of credit- by-examination programs for high school students, that the CLEP and the APP materials are of very high quality but are inadequate as study aids, that credit-by-examination is a positive motivating force for high school students, and that greater emphasis should be given the availability of credit-by- examination. Furthermore, concern was expressed over the divergent approaches to credit-by-examination used by the CLEP and the APP as evidenced by the feeling that the CLEP may be inferior to the APP because CLEP examinations appear to be less difficult.
