Whether you’re temporarily homeschooling or a full-time homeschooler, The College Board’s handling of AP testing for this year is a BIG DEAL. Here’s what you need to know so far:
The AP Exam administration remains as scheduled for schools that will be open on May 4–8 and 11–15, with late testing scheduled for May 20–22.
We understand that this situation is evolving daily, however. If a school is already closed or needs to close in March or April, AP makeup testing dates will be available.
If a school has lost instructional days for AP 2-D Art and Design, 3-D Art and Design, Computer Science Principles, Drawing, Research, or Seminar courses and would like to request extensions for portfolio submission deadlines, please contact AP Services for Educators beginning March 16. (note: homeschool families / temporary homeschoolers should contact their testing location’s AP Coordinator)
Remember, ANYONE can take an AP exam- you don’t need to participate in an AP course. As such, don’t let restricted access to your AP course throw you off schedule. Here are some essential resources to keep your learning on track:
- Foundations. Learn how AP Classroom complements the new AP course and exam descriptions and offers students opportunities for practice and feedback throughout the year.
- AP Classroom Demo. See a click-through demonstration of AP Classroom, which highlights how to assign, score, and interpret results from Topic Questions, Personal Progress Checks, and teacher-created assignments and quizzes from the AP Question Bank.
- AP Quick Start Videos.Watch short tutorials on the recent features added to AP Classroom.
Beginning in early April, free online video lessons developed by AP teachers will be available for the AP topics and skills typically taught in the final weeks of each AP course. Watch the videos at youtube.com/advancedplacement.
As updates are released, it will be shared here. If you’d like to learn more about how to use AP in your homeschool, check out my HS4CC Advanced Placement Exam Page.
