With this endorsement, the test has been renamed from 46904 to 26904. Oklahoma Department of Education also approved this course/test for one (1) elective fine arts speech credit. The course can only be used for one credit, so the course credit must be designated at the time of class enrollment.

We are currently printing and mailing competency certificates every other week. Printing occurs on Fridays, and certificates are normally mailed out by the following Monday. These are mailed to each school's testing liaison for distribution. As the end of each school term approaches, we will increase the frequency of printing and distribution as testing increases. For information concerning reprints of incorrectly printed certificates, please see below.
