ANOTHER NEWSFLASH! 03/25/20: Thank you Ms. Jahshan for passing on the information below. I was scheduled to work on AP Euro tomorrow, but this is great. I hope it answers many of your Qs.
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. 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.
Taking the Exam We surveyed 18,000 AP students to see if they still wanted the opportunity to test this year. Their answer: a resounding yes.
Free resources will be available through exam day to help you get ready. While we encourage you to wait until closer to the test to decide, any student registered for an exam can cancel at no charge.
For the 2019-20 exam administration only: We’re 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. You’ll be able to take your exams on any device you have access to—computer, tablet, or smartphone. You’ll also have the option to write your 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. For decades, colleges have accepted a shortened AP Exam for college credit when groups of students have experienced emergencies.
We know that not all students have access to the internet or a device. We’re working on solutions to help students get what they need to show their best work. If you need mobile tools or connectivity or know someone who does, you can reach us directly to let us know.
The exams will be secure. We’re using a variety of digital security tools, including plagiarism detection software.
Free AP Review Classes Beginning on Wednesday, March 25, you can attend free, live AP review courses, delivered by AP teachers from across the country. These courses: Are optional, mobile-friendly, and can be used alongside any work your teacher may give you. 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 including topics from the final 25% of the course. To access the live classes and recordings, visit the AP YouTube channel. We’ll be adding more courses soon. Daily AP Course Schedule.
Go to AP Central for more info.
03/26/20: 1. We will be shifting over to Google Classroom next week, so this will be my last post on this for now, maybe forever. The resources that are here will remain here but lesson materials will be posted to your Google classroom beginning next week; 2. Your adjusted AP Exam is being prepared by the College Board with more information as to its format coming out around 4/3/20, we think it will be either an LEQ with choices to select from (CCOT or a Comparison type seem most logical to me, but I am not sure) OR a series of source based SAQs. We will not know until 4/3 so relax! We will continue to practice all types of assessment in preparation for your big day. Bottom line is KNOW the LEQ rubric and write accordingly, and for SAQs complete the task fully but do not write more than required due to time constraints - we have practiced this all year! ; 3. Next week I am planning to finish Ch 25 even though it is beyond the scope of the exam, I just think you need to know the Russian Revolution, period! April will be spent reviewing our Units 1-7 course material and practicing our skills. AFTER the exam I plan to finish our content (Units 8 & 9) and get into the 20th century as no educated person should be without knowledge of that stuff / 03/26/20
Signing off for now... check your Google Class for your period for more info from here on out! Blessings
