     COVID-19 AP EXAM UPDATE

    On March 20th, CollegeBoard sent out additional information regarding the 2020 AP exam administration. The key points from Collegeboard are as follows:

    • For the 2019-20 exam administration only, students can take a 45-minute online exam at home. Educator-led development committees are currently selecting the exam questions that will be administered. 

    • Some students may want to take the exam sooner rather than later, while the content is still fresh. Other students may want more time to practice. For each AP subject, there will be two different testing dates. Test dates have not yet been published, but are expected to be announced April 3rd. 

    • AP curricula are locally developed and we defer to local decisions on how best to help students complete coursework. To be fair to all students, some of whom have lost more instructional time than others, the exam will only include topics and skills most AP teachers and students have already covered in class by early March. 

    • Colleges support this solution and are committed to ensuring that AP students receive the credit they've worked this year to earn. For decades, colleges have accepted a shortened AP Exam for college credit when groups of students have experienced emergencies. 

    • Students will be able to take these streamlined exams on their Lenovo device for the exam. If you are having WiFi connectivity issues, please email Ms. Amaturo at vamaturo@ebnet.org.

    • The exam questions are designed in ways that prevent cheating. We use a range of digital security tools and techniques, including plagiarism detection software, to protect the integrity of the exams. Scoring at-home work for an AP Exam isn't new to the AP Program.   

     As additional information becomes available from CollegeBoard, AP students and parents will be notified via the email provided in Total Registration after April 3rd.

    Instructional Support 

    Information about the reduced scope of content that will be covered on each 2020 AP Exam is currently posted on AP Central®The specific test dates and the free-response question types will all be posted by April 3. Collegeboard will also unlock any relevant free-response questions in AP Classroom for digital use so students can access all practice questions of the type that will appear on the exam. 

    Beginning on Wednesday, March 25, students and teachers can attend free, live AP review courses, delivered by AP teachers from across the country. These mobile-friendly classes are: 

    • Designed to be used alongside work that may be given by schools. 
    • Will be recorded and available on-demand so teachers and students can access them any time. 
    • Not dependent on current AP teachers continuing instruction. 
    • Will focus on reviewing the skills and concepts from the first 75% of the course. There will also be some supplementary lessons including topics from the final 25% of the course. 

     

    AP Registration for the 2020 exams is closed.
