AP Tests

- The College Board has moved all of their AP exams online so that students are able to complete them remotely. A full AP testing guide is available here.
- Exams will take place May 11-22 and make-up exams will take place June 1-5. The new dates and times are listed below.
- Students with documented accommodations will automatically receive accommodations. More specific information regarding accommodations can be found here.
- Students will receive a testing guide prior to exam administration that will answer questions about the exam.
- Students will receive a testing access code from the College Board that they will use to log in to their exam.
- Students will have a timer available during their test, but must submit the test themselves. If they submit after time, nothing will be counted.
- Students can take the exam on any device - computer, tablet, phone, etc. They will also be able to hand write answers to questions, take pictures, and virtually upload those for credit.
- The exam format for different subjects has changed and most exams will now only be 45 minutes, your student's AP teacher has been sharing details and test prep.
- Students who take their exams during the scheduled time will get scores on time, but scores may be delayed if they take the make-up exam.
- AP Studio Art has some changes to the submission process. All of the details can be found here. The deadline for submission of artwork is now Tuesday, May 26, 11:59pm ET.- A webinar was held by Trevor Packer, Senior Vice President of AP and Instruction at College Board, specifically for parents about how they can help their students prepare for AP exams. You can register and view the recorded webinar here.

**We want to strongly encourage all students to continue to engage in their AP classes and exams, as colleges will still be awarding credit for the exams scores. However, given the situation we are in and knowing that not every student may have the ability to focus on the test right now, students will be allowed to opt out of their exam and we will not require it for AP credit on students' transcripts.**
