Requirements for Texas Constitution Replacement Credit Option (RCO)

Texas State Capitol, Austin, Texas

Be sure you read and understand everything on this page before you begin!

IF YOU HAVE NOT EXERCISED THE U.S. CONSTITUTION RCO, STOP NOW!
THE TEXAS CONSTITUTION RCO IS ONLY FOR STUDENTS WHO HAVE EXERCISED THE U.S. CONSTITUTION RCO IN A PREVIOUS CLASS!
IF YOU HAVE NEVER EXERCISED EITHER RCO, YOU MUST DO THE U. S. CONSTITUTION VERSION FIRST!


  1. Print out Dr. Butler's Replacement Credit Option for Students Who Have Already Taken the US Constititution Exam, which consists of 100 questions about the Texas Constitution. (PDF, 10 pages) These questions are a mixture of multiple choice and true/false.

  2. Referring to the text of the Texas Constitution located at this State of Texas website (or any other reliable source), mark the answers to the 100 questions on both the 10-page question form and a Scantron form 882-E.

  3. Submit the completed Scantron form to the Professor, who will score it and return it to you as soon as possible. Before taking the 50-question Texas Constitution Exam, you should compare the scored scantron to the marked 10-page question form so that you will know which questions you missed. You should use these questions and answers as study material prior to taking the exam. Please note that the Scantron score will not be recorded. Completing the Scantron is a prerequisite to taking the 50-question Texas Constitution exam.

  4. Take the 50-question Texas Constitution Exam at a time convenient to you, but no later than midnight on the last Sunday before Final Exam week on the QuizStar website. Before accessing QuizStar, READ THESE INSTRUCTIONS!

  5. Whatever grade you make on the 50-question Texas Constitution exam will replace either your lowest exam score for the semester or an exam you missed on account of absence. If the Constitution exam score is lower than your lowest exam score, it will not be recorded. The purpose of this option is to help you improve your grade, not make it worse. ONCE AGAIN, THE RCO MAY NOT BE EXERCISED IN LIEU OF TAKING THE FINAL EXAM!
