How many times can a student take a Keystone exam?
Students must take a Keystone exam at the end of each of the Keystone-assessed courses. (i.e.: At the end of the year, students in Biology will take the Biology Keystone Exam.)
If a student does not score Proficient after taking the Keystone exam in the spring, they can retest in December of the following school year. If they do not score Proficient after the December exam, they can meet the statewide graduation requirement by completing one of the PA Graduation Requirement Pathways.
Additionally, if a student does not score advanced or proficient on the spring and winter waves and wish to retest, he or she needs to inform both their school counselor and Dr. Joseph MacNamara, Assistant Principal of Student Services.
