· Students may use a laptop, tablet or smart phone to take the AP tests. Students can type and upload responses or handwrite their responses and submit a photo of the response.

· In late April, students will receive an email about testing directions and access to test platform. Please let students know that collaboration on tests is not allowed. Submissions will be checked for plagiarism and DHS teachers will receive submitted work to check any inconsistencies or concerns that the work does not belong to the student who submitted it.

· If students do not wish to take a test for which they signed up, they do not have to let the teacher or Mrs. Hungerpiller know. They simply do not take the test.

· All students will receive approved accommodations. These student names have already been submitted and approved.

· Students need to login in to their College Board accounts and make sure that the correct email address is there. This is the only way that they will receive the necessary information to take the test. It will not come from the school. This can be edited under account settings.

· Students also can update institutions to send their AP scores. This is particularly important for seniors to do.
