Credit By Demonstrated Mastery Information for Students and Parents

What is Credit by Demonstrated Mastery (CDM)?

Credit by Demonstrated Mastery (CDM) is the process by which a student may earn credit for a high school course by demonstrating a deep understanding of the content, without course enrollment or seat time. CDM was designed to respond to the needs of students, families, AIG community, school personnel and leadership.

CDM specifically offers Asheboro City Schools students the opportunity to personalize and accelerate their learning, thus allowing for optimal student growth while providing an opportunity to have effective seat time to learn new content.

How does a student earn CDM?
Students shall demonstrate mastery through a multiphase assessment, consisting of:

Phase 1: A standard examination, which shall be the EOC/EOG/CTE Post Assessment where applicable, or a final exam developed locally; and

Phase 2: An artifact which requires the student to apply knowledge and skills relevant to the content standards.

While the CDM process is open to all students, it not designed for whole groups of students. Likewise, it is not intended to replace the general accelerated pathways local school districts often provide for advanced students.
