Credit by Demonstrated Mastery
In Henderson County Public Schools, Credit by Demonstrated Mastery (CDM) allows students to show deep understanding of content and processes in most high school courses. This understanding will be shown through a multi-phase process which will include an examination and a product. Student work on each element will be assessed to determine if it reaches the level necessary to receive course credit. Students who demonstrate mastery will receive course credit, but not grade points.
