Assessments

Demonstrated Competency Assessments

Information
 
The Utah State Board of Education requires school districts to provide students with the opportunity to earn original credit by demonstrating competency. Students can demonstrate competency by passing a state-approved Demonstrated Competency Assessment (DCA).
 
  • Free to all students, grades 9 - 12.
  • Students may take DCAs at any time during grades 9 - 12.
  • Students earn required or elective credit for certain courses by passing DCAs instead of earning credit through traditional classroom enrollment.
  • Under guidance of a school counselor, the DCA can accelerate a student's education.
  • Students are responsible for acquiring and retaining the content knowledge and skills needed to pass a DCA.
  • Students must submit an application to their school counselor to obtain approval to take a DCA. All applications require 2 signatures; one from the student's school counselor or administrator, and one from the student's parent or legal guardian. Applications are available online.
  • Each assessment may be taken only once per year, per subject tested.
  • Citizenship credit is not awarded for passing any DCA.
  • Students receive a "P" (pass) for earning credit for taking a DCA. No letter grades are awarded. (*See below for special conditions and exceptions.

Available Assessments

  • Biology
  • Computer Technology
  • Earth Systems Science
  • English Language Arts grades 9, 10, 11 & 12

Results

A notification letter with the test results will be sent to the email(s) provided by the student, parent(s) or guardian(s), and school counselor.

Application

All referrals for the Demonstrated Competency Assessment testing program must come from a school counselor or administrator for every student who receives testing services at the Northern Utah Testing Center. The Student Application is linked below, where students can download and complete the form. The application requires approval signatures from designated school officials and the student's parent or legal guardian prior to scheduling the first testing appointment. If the student is 18 years of age or older, the parent or legal guardian must still provide his or her consent for testing.

View application

Each DCA is composed of two or more modules and may require more than one sitting. As students pass modules, they can move onto the next. World Language Assessments may require up to three weeks to initiate. Students must contact the Testing Center to schedule an appointment. They must bring their completed application and a valid, current photo I.D. when they come to test.

Note

*Credit earned through the Demonstrated Competency Assessment program will be accepted by all public and charter schools within the State of Utah, as supported by state law. However, students enrolled at private schools or in home-school programs should speak with their school district counselor or administrator prior to engaging in the testing process, to ensure that credit earned will be accepted toward graduation.

 
**Students pursuing a college athletic career: 

The National Collegiate Athletic Association (NCAA) does NOT recognize courses completed through credit-by-exam. Credit earned by taking a Demonstrated Competency Assessment will NOT be accepted to meet NCAA eligibility.

 
***Students pursuing the Utah Regents' Scholarship:

 Please refer to the Regents Scholarship Program Guide for information regarding competency testing.
