Lee Binz of http://www.thehomescholar.com has the answer for that. I love her blog and you can type in "CLEP" under search, like I did, to find answers to questions like this.

She says in her blog:

Quote:
A CLEP Exam is a college level test that measures college level knowledge in a specific subject area. If a child takes and passes a CLEP test in ANYTHING then it goes on the high school transcript.

When determining high school credit for CLEP, it does not matter how long it took the student to learn the material. Whether 2 weeks or 2 years, credit is not determined by the hours of study. With CLEP, you give 1 high school credit for each test they pass with a score of 50 or more. Don’t bother to count hours studying. This time credit is being given based on achievement – achievement on a test.

The grade can always be an “A” or “4.0″ because they have taken and passed a college level course, which is much more difficult than a simple high school course, which is what you are grading.

The course title is the exact name of the CLEP Test, like “College Composition” or “Principals of Macroeconomics.”
