Upon reaching the baseline target score of 90, every student has the opportunity to raise their own target score to 100 and continue studying. We encourage this so that students can get the most out of the Texas College Bridge program and be ready for college. However, it is not required and students who select this option are not penalized in any way.
Although 90 is the "target score" on each stage, technically speaking it is a minimum requirement and students can go further if they want to.
When they reach 90, they see a congratulations page that offers them the opportunity to continue studying. If they select this option, it resets their target score from 90 to 100 and puts all of the remaining topics into their study path.
As far as Texas College Bridge is concerned, they will get their certificate if they have reached 90 in both stages (and passed the essay for English), and this extra content is for the student's own benefit.
Like all students, those who continue working beyond 90 need to make sure that their score stays at 90 or above so that they will earn their certificate.
Students who choose to raise their target score and continue studying will show up with some different designations in reporting, but certificates are based on the 90 target score. Since their target score is now higher, the system identifies their progress as "improving" rather than "met target".
