  • The CCA is defined as the Performance Based section of the final exam for each course.
  • Students may substitute a math and/or science NECAP score of 3 or better for a CCA in math or science and a NECAP score of 3 or better in writing to replace an ELA CCA.
  • Senior year CCA’smay be used to show proficiency when necessary though it is assumed that most students will submit work from the freshman, sophomore and junior years.
