AP Testing Information
As many of you are aware, College Board will be providing at-home testing to all students enrolled in Advanced Placement courses. All SCPPS students who are currently enrolled in an AP course or students who were enrolled in An AP course during the fall of 2019 will take a 45-minute online, free-response exam from their home. Students will be able to take these streamlined exams on any device they have access to—a computer, tablet, or smartphone. Taking a photo of handwritten work will also be an option. AP exams will be administered between May 11th and May 22nd. Please go to the College Board website and check the “Coronavirus Updates” link to access a complete exam schedule, information about which units will and will not be assessed on this year’s exam, and details about how exams will be administered at home.
Your AP student can now access free, live, and on-demand courses to review content and skills that were covered in the first 75% of each AP course. Your student can sign in to his/her AP Classroom account to find a course schedule and access these courses through an AP YouTube Channel. These courses are designed to be used alongside any coursework provided by the student’s AP teacher.
It is important that students communicate regularly with their AP teachers during this time. Students should check their Google Classroom daily, as AP teachers are providing additional resources and exam practice. If you or your student has any questions about the new review resources or this year’s abbreviated AP exam, please reach out to your student’s AP teacher. The AP teachers in our district are committed to helping all AP students maximize their potential to earn college credit through AP exams.
