The California High School Proficiency Exam (CHSPE) is an early-exit testing program. Students who pass the exam receive the legal equivalent of a diploma, entitled a “Certificate of Proficiency,” from the California State Board of Education.
The exam consists of two sections: Math & Language Arts. Students are given 3 ½ hours to complete both sections and may allocate their time between either section as they would like. There is also a writing component of the exam.
