Long Term Considerations
To earn course credit through CDM
, a student must be able to demonstrate a deep understanding of the knowledge and skills of a particular course at a superior level as well as being able to apply that knowledge in a real-world context, requiring that students show deeper content mastery and establishing clearly that he/she should be awarded credit for that course.
As part of this process, a School-level CDM Review Panel will make a recommendation of whether to award credit or not based on student demonstration of the criteria stated above. This decision will be based on (1) a minimum required score as set by the state on the Phase I assessment and (2) a superior rating on Phase II artifacts. If the CDM review panel does not award CDM for a course, and a student and his/her parent(s) do not agree with the decision of the School CDM Review Panel, they may file an appeal.
These are the guidelines for the appeals process:
Phase I EOC,CTE post assessment, and Non-EOC (local final exam)
scores are not appealable.
Students and their parents should submit appeals within ten days of receiving notification that an attempt for CDM was not successful.
Appeals should be in writing addressed to the school principal. This appeal should include reasoning for appeal and the date of submission.
The CDM Review panel will review the appeal.
The Review Panel will conduct an appeals review within ten days of receipt and will collect any additional data requested.
The CDM Review Panel will provide final recommendations within ten days of their appeals review.
The decision of the appeals panel is final.
