Computer Literacy Tests

Students in programs that require ITE 152 can satisfy the computer competency course requirement in the curriculum by passing Reynolds' computer competency or Credit by Able exam administered in the Testing Centers. For the ITE 152 Credit by Able test, students need to purchase an access code from a Reynolds bookstore or online. Learn more about Reynolds computer competency requirements for students. Students not passing the computer competency exam may retake the exam only once.

Credit by Assessment by Local Exam (ABLE)

Credit by ABLE is available at the discretion of the academic program and is not available for all courses taught at Reynolds. Academic deans and program heads have the discretion to deny requests for credit by ABLE. In programs where CLEP/AP/IB credit are not available as a means to test to receive academic credit, credit by ABLE may be a means of earning college credit for prior learning by demonstrating satisfactory academic competency in a particular subject. Students interested in pursuing credit by ABLE should contact the appropriate academic program head of the curriculum. Credit by Able scores do not transfer to other institutions, they are only applicable to coursework taken at Reynolds.
