Tips for AP Testing

Tips for AP Testing

As we approach the testing week, here are some essential reminders for students:

  1. Students need to be waiting in line by the testing site by 7:40 (or 11:40 for afternoon tests). Actual testing begins at 7:45 am and 11:45 am. Students should leave their backpacks and belongings in their locker, unless noted below.
  2. Cell phones are prohibited…tell your students not to bring them. Proctors will double check the day of the test.
  3. Students need to bring a black pen in addition to pencils. Bring more than one pencil.
  4. Keep snacks small and clean. Students will be given a break in the middle for stretching and bathroom use, etc. They may bring a small snack for themselves if desired, but snacks and drinks must be small and left on the side table. Water may be kept on the floor under their table.
  5. Students are expected to be in attendance for the test even if they have conflicting extra-curricular activities. Every student in every AP class is scheduled to test (AP Spanish is the only exception due to it being a four-year preparation period).
  6. Students cannot forgo the test in favor of a softball game/tournament or similar event.
  7. Students who do not show up for the test forfeit the opportunity to test.
  8. Students may be out of uniform for the testing day. Remind them to bring a sweater as it may be cold in the testing room.
  9. Students who have consecutive tests within a two day period may be allowed to not attend the remaining classes following or preceding an AP test on those days, if they bring a note from their parents allowing this.
