CHANGES TO AP TESTING: Spring, 2020
As more information is released by The College Board, we want to keep you up-to-date of the changes as they are announced. Your first resource should be AP's Student website:
Our goal here is to provide a summary of what we know and how these updates will affect you at Neuqua Valley.
REGISTRATION & SCHEDULING
Test registration is currently closed, and there is no information yet if that will change.
AP has waived cancellation fees, but we encourage all students to remain registered and take the new exams.
At this time, there is not a calendar or schedule of when the new tests will be available to be taken.
THE ADJUSTED TESTS
AP is creating a new test experience that will include 7-10 Free Response questions
with a 45-minute time limit that will be taken online at home. There will be no multiple choices.
We do not know the rubric for these short essay questions, (we anticipate more information on April 3) and there is not currently details about students who have extended time to test and other accommodations.
Beginning Wednesday, March 25, AP will be releasing full AP courses online along with review lessons that will focus on the abbreviated units that the new tests will cover.
See the AP Student Website. We will also be sending out the link again as the resources go live.
Your teacher(s) will be the best resource for you, but please remember that we are receiving and digesting the information as quickly as you are.
