Ohio's plan for credit flexibility is designed to broaden the scope of curricular options availabile to students, increase the depth of studyavailable for a particular subject, and tailor the learning time or conditions as needed (to shorten) or lenghthen the time necessary to complete a high school diploma and/or post-secondary degree.) In these ways, students can customize learning around more of their interests and needs.
With credit flexibility, students can earn credit in three ways, or in a combination of these ways:
1. By completing traditional coursework
2. By testing out or otherwise demonstrating proficiency of the course content; or
3. By pursuing one or more educational options (e.g. distance learning, educational travel, independent study, an internship, music, arts, afterschool program, community services or engagement project).
