SUBJECT:     Credit by Examination Reporting


This is the third year we are seeking comprehensive information on the amount of credit by examination awarded annually. This assessment will include all public and four-year campuses.

I enclose last years report with additional space for reporting Credit by Examination awarded in FY 00. Please ask the appropriate office on your campus to complete the form and return to me via email by August 10, 2001. I will compile responses and Joyce Scott will share the report with you prior to submitting it to the Board of Regents at their September meeting.

For this report, credit earned through any of the testing programs accepted on your campus [Advanced Placement, CLEP General and/or Subject Examinations, DANTES Subject Tests, course challenge examinations] should be included. If you have any questions or require further information, please contact me or Joyce at 406-444-0314.

Thank you for your assistance.
