Demonstrated Competency Assessments
The Granite Testing Center serves students in grades 9-12 enrolled at any school (or home school) from Salt Lake County southward to Washington County who wish to demonstrate competency in a particular course. Each assessment is rigorous as it represents a full course of instruction; whether it is a semester or a full year course. The test includes both content knowledge as well as application of that information. Successful students typically have had extensive previous experience in a course, such as a similar course from out-of-state, related coursework, participation in extra-curricular activities or advanced personal/independent study. Students should meet with their counselor and parent/guardian to review previous coursework, standardized test scores or other relevant experience to decide if the student is sufficiently prepared to be successful on the DCA. There are no specific study guides for the assessments, however, students should review the state core standards for the course.
A request for testing must be made and a test ticket filled out and signed by a Parent/Guardian as well as the student’s counselor. Each test has at least two parts, so two or more testing days will be required; the second session will be scheduled only if the first portion of the assessment is passed. Most tests require only a 2 day advanced notice, however some require up to 3 weeks. Please see the chart below for details.
