In Onslow County Schools, Credit by Demonstrated Mastery (CDM) will allow students to have the opportunity to show deep understanding of content and processes in three subjects (Math I, English II, Biology) for the 2014-2015 school year. 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.
Students will need to complete a Student-Family Agreement form by Monday, February 10, 2014 (this has been moved back a few days due to the snow) in order to be eligible to take part in the CDM process prior to the 2014-2015 school year. The agreement form and other information can be found at http://academicinnovation.weebly.com/cdm.html.
Further documents regarding CDM including Frequently Asked Questions and Long Term Scheduling Questions are also found at the weebly.
