What are the STAAR graduation requirements for students who earn course credit through Advanced Placement (AP) or International Baccalaureate (IB) courses?

Students who earn Texas high school course credit through an AP or IB course that is substituting
for a TEKS-based course required for graduation (e.g., AP biology instead of TEKS-based biology)
are required to take the STAAR EOC assessment. However, if the student takes the AP or IB test,
the student may be able to use the AP or IB test score instead of the STAAR EOC assessment
score to fulfill his or her testing requirement for graduation. See the substitute assessments
question above.
