Update for AP Students

Posted by Andrea Wilmer on Apr 3, 2020 3:06:37 PM

Students will complete their AP journey by taking their AP Exams online on any device they have access to—computer, tablet, or smartphone. They will also have the option to write their responses by hand and submit a photo. Every student must have access to a device to take the exams. If your student does not have access to a device, please contact School Counselor Kim Koverman at k.koverman@lehmancatholic.com by April 23 to secure a device to take the test.

Taking AP Exams

AP Exams are May 11 - 22. Each subject’s exam will be taken on the same day, at the same time, worldwide. Makeup test dates will be available for each subject from June 1 - 5, but only applicable if there was a malfunction on your student’s device on the original test date.


AP Exam Format

Most exams will have one or two free-response questions, and each question will be timed separately. Students will need to write and submit their responses within the allotted time for each question.

  • Students will be able to take exams on any device they have access to—computer, tablet, or smartphone. They'll be able to type and upload their responses or write responses by hand and submit a photo via their cell phones.
  • For most subjects, the exams will be 45 minutes long, plus an additional 5 minutes for uploading. Students will need to access the online testing system 30 minutes early to get set up.

Exam Scores and College Credit

As usual, students' work will be scored by our network of college faculty and AP teachers and will be reported on a 1–5 scale. We anticipate releasing scores as close to the usual July timeframe as possible.

Exam Security

Like many college-level exams, this year's AP Exams will be open book/open note. The exam format and questions are being designed specifically for an at-home administration, so points will not be earned from content that can be found in textbooks or online. However, students taking the exams may not consult with any other individuals during the testing period. 

At a minimum, test takers should understand that those attempting to gain an unfair advantage will either be blocked from testing or their AP scores will be canceled, and their high school will be notified as will colleges or other organizations to which the student has already sent any College Board scores (including SAT® scores). And they may be prohibited from taking a future Advanced Placement® Exam as well as the SAT, SAT Subject Tests™, or CLEP® assessments.

If you have questions, please contact your AP Teacher or School Counselor Kim Koverman at k.koverman@lehmancatholic.com.
