AP EXAMS

AP CLASSES/AP EXAMS

Update 5-6-2020


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 purposes

2. 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.
3. If you choose copy/paste, some of the formatting does not seem to transfer such as indentations for new paragraphs. Instead, double space to show paragraph breaks. Once you paste into the provided text box, you can't edit your response and have to click on "clear field," revise on your original, and re-paste.
4. You can complete the demo as many times as you need to do so, and I highly recommend that teachers and students try it.
5. If you choose the photo upload or attachment upload, prepare your paper/doc before exam day. For photos, you should write your AP ID, initials, and page numbers at the top of at least 5 pages of paper (I'm encouraging my students to write in black ink). For attachments, set up a header with your AP ID and initials on a doc and then save the doc so that it's ready to go.

UPDATE 4/23/2020

· 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.


UPDATE 4/8/2020

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

UPDATE FROM COLLEGE BOARD

https://apstudents.collegeboard.org/coronavirus-up..


The College Board is developing tools to mitigate the impact of school closures on students in the Advanced Placement Program. All AP students and teachers will be able to draw on the free online resources that were provided to every AP classroom this fall. Additional resources will be made easily accessible to AP students and teachers through mobile phones and other devices. These include free online AP lessons and review sessions from some of the top AP teachers in the country.
The AP program is finalizing streamlined AP exam options that would allow students to test at home, depending on the situation in May. We’re working to give every AP student the opportunity to claim the credit they’ve earned. The AP Program will communicate the details of these additional solutions to educators and students by March 20.
The College Board’s focus will remain on student safety and ensuring all students have the tools they need to work, and opportunities to receive the credit they have earned, during this challenging time.

SAT EXAM UPDATE
In response to the rapidly evolving situation around the coronavirus (COVID-19), the College Board is canceling the May 2, 2020, SAT administration. Makeup exams for the March 14 administration (scheduled March 28) are also canceled. Registered students will receive refunds.
The College Board will provide future additional SAT testing opportunities for students as soon as feasible in place of canceled administrations.
