College Board moves AP exams online
As schools continue to navigate the challenges posed by the coronavirus pandemic, the College Board is providing free remote learning resources and a new at-home testing option for AP students.
"Based on the number and length of school closures, it's clear that the usual way AP exams are given at schools won’t be possible,” according to the College Board’s website. "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. The full exam schedule, specific free-response question types that will be on each AP Exam, and additional testing information will be available by April 3."
For the 2019-20 exam administration only:
- The College Board is developing secure 45-minute online free-response exams for each course.
- The exam content will focus on what most schools were able to complete by early March.
- Students will be able to take exams on any device, including a computer, tablet or smartphone. They will also have the option to write responses by hand and submit a photo.
- Colleges support this solution and are committed to ensuring that AP students receive the credit they have worked to earn.
Beginning on Wednesday, March 25, students can attend free, live AP review courses, delivered by AP teachers from across the country. These courses:
- Are optional and mobile-friendly.
- Will be available on-demand, so you can access them any time.
- Will focus on reviewing the skills and concepts from the first 75% of the course. There will also be some supplementary lessons covering the final 25% of the course.
