    Last time I checked everything was cool at CLEP. Then the cut-off for A's went out of this world on some of them, and about half turned into 50/(pass). I mean how do you drive a gpa up when the CLEP system has gone haywire?

    Do you know of any school other than Excelsior that CLEP's actually affect GPA?

  3. Actually, ALL of them now have a "pass" score of 50 (within a range of 30-80.) The change took effect when ETS transitioned to computer-based administration of the exams.

    The only tests where ACE (and CLEP) credit recommendations are impacted by scores over 50 are the foreign language subject exams-- 6 credits for a passing score versus up to 12 for a marginally higher score. Unless (as Bill has pointed out) you're hunting a GPA from Excelsior, I can't imagine that it will make much of a difference.

    Progress is being made!

    About half of the tests have been interpreted and have cut-off scores for A-B-C ( by Excelsior ) and half are still ( as far as I know) still 50/(pass). And yes, I go(?) to Excelsior. When my year is up the company I work for forgets they paid for the tuition initially so maybe I'll go to TESC next time around and finish up!
