Four Steps to Take Before Exam Day
  • Digital Application Now Available

     
    The College Board's AP Digital App is now available to load on to your devices for your Digital AP exams.  The practice, and actual exams are taken from this App.  Please load the app and make sure everything is working properly.  If you are using a school issued chromebook the App has already been loaded on to your chromebooks.  Directions on how to access the App were sent last week through blackboard mail from Ms. Keck, our AP Coordinator. Start practicing now so that you will not have issues on exam day.  
     
    Remember that 1-3 days before each  digital exam you will have to complete an exam set-up.  30 minutes before each digital exam you will have to complete an exam check-in.

    Digital Tests - Chromebook Testing App Required

    In preparation for the upcoming AP exam sessions that will be administered online, this correspondence provides important information for students who will be using a school-issued Chromebook for the exam.  Please note that the school-issued Chromebooks have the Digital AP App preloaded. If your student is using a personal device, he/she will need to download the AP App in order to access the practice tests and the AP exams.
