Gaining Momentum

Achievement points are the quantifiers used to gauge student success under the Student Achievement Initiative.
For I-BEST these points are calculated by the level gains made in the Basic Skills component, determined by CASAS post-testing.

Additional Momentum Points are earned for the first 15  and 30 college level credits earned.
