AP CLASSES/AP EXAMS
Below are some tips from my students and me after we tried the AP interactive testing demo.
1. If you are most comfortable typing in a Google Doc, you will want to choose the paste option for submitting. Some districts which have issued devices block downloads/conversions of Google Docs for attachment purposes2. You have a limited time to enter your info at the beginning before the exam question appears. Have handy your 8-character AP ID and email address which you use for MyAP.
· Testing window is May 11-22. Tests are at 12pm, 2pm or 4pm Eastern time. Go to the following link to see date and times for tests: https://apcoronavirusupdates.collegeboard.org/stud...
· Make-up dates are June 1-5. This is only for students who are unable to test during regular administration.
· All exams are open book/notes and most tests will take 45 minutes. They will contain 1-2 free response questions. Students should access the testing platform 30 minutes before testing time to get set up. Students may use a calculator.
· 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.
AP Exams will be administered May 11-22. These exams will be completed online for all students who signed up to take the test. Dates and times of the AP Exams are available on the College Board website
