CLEP Analyzing and Interpreting Literature

CLEP Analyzing and Interpreting Literature - how hard is this test and what do I need to do to pass it?

Actually, this is what we think is one of the easiest tests to take. Why? There is almost no memorization. You don't have to read and memorize parts of Shakespeare or long poems. What do you do? You read a short excerpt or a poem and answer questions about it. It is pretty straightforward. The main thing you have to have is....confidence and of course our CLEP study guide would help too.

You need practice reading and "explaining" literature in literature terms. If alliteration and verse sound scary, they are really not. You'll only need to memorize about 20 different terms, compare that to a heavy Biology exam and you're halfway there.

We will give you practice and make you feel completely comfortable in passing this test. Many students take this test first to build their confidence and then take another, and another, etc. CLEP testing can be addicting. We're happy to help show you how, or at least give you a few CLEP test questions for free.

What is the letter grade equivalent for DSST exams?

How does a DSST exam score equal out to a letter grade?

Well, it really depends on your school. If you took the Introduction to World Religions DANTES test and got a 400 - at most schools you would be getting a C. 426 would get you a B.

 Older tests such as Human Resource Management have these thresholds:
54 - A
53 - B
46-52 C

These score thresholds should be listed on your schools DSST credit website or available on a sheet from your counselor. However, most schools DO NOT award credit this way. A big exception is Excelsior College.

Your 400 at Excelsior College for the World Religions test will get you a pass/fail period.

The HR Management test will give you a different scoring than above:

55 - A
50 - B
46 - C

The moral of the story? Schools can choose any way that they want to award the credit and you should find out that in advance so you can make the proper plans.
