AP Testing Updated Information

Hello Patriots,

As you may be aware, there have been changes to how Advanced Placement will be taking place this year.  Lake Brantley High School is working diligently to ensure that your students will still receive the instruction needed to help them be successful with the AP Exams they are registered for.  Teachers will be working with your students through either e-campus or Google Classroom to ensure they receive the needed resources for their classes.

CollegeBoard has laid out the following information regarding how the exams will take place this year. 

  • “For the 2019–20 exam administration only, students can take a 45-minute online free-response exam at home. Educator-led development committees are currently selecting the exam questions that will be administered.
  • 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 have 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 any device they have access to—computer, tablet, or smartphone. Taking a photo of handwritten work will also be an option.
  • We recognize that the digital divide could prevent some low-income and rural students from participating. Working with partners, we will invest so that these students have the tools and connectivity they need to review AP content online and take the exam. If your students need mobile tools or connectivity, you can reach out to us directly to let us know.

CollegeBoard has setup a website that provides updates on how testing will take place and a calendar on when testing will commence which can be found at https://apcentral.collegeboard.org/about-ap/news-changes/coronavirus-update.  CollegeBoard has also set up a website that will provide students with free resources for students which can be found at https://apstudents.collegeboard.org/coronavirus-updates#free-ap-classes.  Information regarding students who need testing accommodations will be released once CollegeBoard has determined their updated policies.
