Due to COVID-19 crisis, The College Board is allowing students to take their AP Exams in their homes using an online platform.
The expectation of the district requires all students enrolled in an Advanced Placement (AP) classes to take the exam associated with the AP course. Teachers have been preparing students since the beginning of the school year and provided students the tools for success. The College Board continues to provide students the opportunities to successfully prepare and practice for their exams.
In order to maintain the integrity of the exams, The College Board has established serious consequences for academic dishonesty (Please read closely):
- Students whose responses mirror online content or other students’ submissions will have their scores canceled.
- Students sharing or receiving exam content or exam responses, or engaging in any plans or efforts to provide or gain an unfair advantage, will be blocked from testing or their AP scores will be cancelled. This includes communications or assistance in-person, via the Internet, social media, or any other means.
- If College Board determines that a student gained or provided an unfair advantage on an AP Exam, College Board will notify their high school so the school can take necessary disciplinary action.
- College Board will also provide information about any attempt to cheat on an AP exam to colleges or other organizations to which the student has already sent any College Board scores (including SAT scores), or to which the student would send scores in the future.
- Students who attempt to gain an unfair advantage be prohibited from taking a future Advanced Placement Exam as well as the SAT, SAT Subject Tests, or CLEP assessments.
- Under certain circumstances, College Board may inform law enforcement of any incident to determine if prosecution of the test taker, or anyone assisting the test taker in misconduct, is warranted.
Since the AP exams are online this year, the structure of the exam is:
- The exams will only include topics and skills most AP teachers and students have already covered in class by early March. The College Board knows that some students have lost more class time than others, and wants to be fair to all students.
- Like many college-level exams, this year’s AP Exams will be open book/open note.
- Most exams will have one or two free-response questions, and each question is timed separately. Students will need to write and submit their responses within the allotted time for each question. Detailed information about each exam can be found here: https://apcoronavirusupdates.collegeboard.org/educators/taking-the-exams/ap-exam-schedule
- For most subjects, the exams will be 45 minutes long, and include an additional 5 minutes for uploading. Students will need to access the online testing system 30 minutes early to get set up.
- Students will be able to take exams on any device they have access to—computer, tablet, or smartphone. They will be able to either type and upload their responses or write responses by hand and submit a photo via their cell phone.
Students have the ability to practice answering Free Response Questions (FRQ) in their AP dashboard accounts. Students can compare their answers against a rubric and gain a deeper understanding of the required components. Additionally, teachers are providing support and practice through the AP dashboard or Schoology.
Students will also be able to practice submitting their exams through College Board’s portal. Once this information is released, another communication will be sent. Students are strongly encouraged to practice submitting exams before the date of their actual Advanced Placement exam.
