Assessment

Texas City ISD wants every student to learn and grow.  We help district and campus leaders make good decisions by giving them information so that teachers and students can succeed.  Below are a few of the assessments that students take during the school year:

Advanced Placement (AP) Exams

The Advanced Placement Program® (AP) enables willing and academically prepared students to pursue college-level studies while still in high school.  The program consists of college-level courses developed by the AP Program that high schools can choose to offer, and corresponding exams that are administered once a year.

  • There are 38 AP courses in seven subject categories
  • Each AP course is modeled on a comparable introductory college course in the subject.
  • Each course culminates in a standardized college-level assessment or AP Exam.
  • AP Exams are given in May each year
  • Schools must be authorized by the AP Course Audit to offer approved AP courses and use the AP designation.

College Entrance Exams

It is never too early to prepare for college, especially when it comes to the ACT and SAT college entrance exams.  Although test scores are not the only thing that colleges look at, they are part of the process and determine eligibility for academic scholarships.  As you begin studying for the tests, utilize the resources below:

Credit by Exam (CBE)
