(Formulario disponible aquí en español.)

     

    As of April 6, 2020:

    The College Board has recently given schools updated information about the May 2020 AP exam season.  Below are some of the highlights.  Marshfield High School’s AP Leadership Team encourages you to view College Board’s website for the updates in full detail. 

     

    • AP exams in 2020 will be a 45 minute exam that will be given online at the student’s home.  Students may use a computer, a tablet, an iPad, or a smart phone. 
    • Students may not consult with anyone else during the exam time. 
    • Students can either type and upload their exam responses or write responses by hand and then submit a photo via their cell phone. 
    • AP exams will be during the weeks of May 11 and May 18.  Please see the specific exam schedule below. Note the starting time of your exam and be prepared to log into the online testing system 30 minutes prior  to your exam start timeto get set up. 
      • If you have a conflict with your AP exam date, you must email Mrs. Guldan (guldanr@marshfieldschools.org ), AP Coordinator, by April 21, 2020.  Include your first name, last name, AP exam name that you have a conflict with and the reason for your conflict.  The AP Leadership Team will then review your request for the late AP exam date and let you know by email of the decision by May 1, 2020.  Late testing will occur during the week of June 1.
    • If you were approved for test accommodations, please know you will still receive them. If it was for extended time, College Board states the timer that you will see on your exam screen will be adjusted to your approved extended time amount.  More information will be shared by College Board in upcoming weeks. 
    • Do you have a barrier to technology access?  If you believe so, reach out to College Board online and scroll down on this website until you see Don’t Have Internet or a Device.  Then click on Fill Out Form. You must do this by April 24, 2020. If you prefer to call College Board to talk about your technology concerns, please call them at 888-225-5427 by April 24, 2020.   
    • In late April, College Board will provide AP students with information on how to access the testing system on test day and video demonstrations so students can familiarize themselves with the system.  It is highly recommended that you view the demonstrations prior to testingso that you can access your exam and that you are comfortable knowing how to submit your exam responses.  Students need to go online and attend the AP review lessons as this will give you more information about what will be on the test, what the online test system will be like and how to get help with technology on exam day. 
    • If you decide between today and May 1, 2020 that you do not want to take an AP exam, you must email Mrs. Guldan ( guldanr@marshfieldschools.org ), AP Coordinator, the following information:  your first name, last name, AP exam name that you want to cancel and the reason for cancelling.  College Board is stating that if you paid your AP exam fee in full then a full refund will be given. Refunds will only be given if Mrs. Guldan is notified by May 1, 2020.  Refunds will not be processed until after all AP exams have been given.

    Per the College Board on March 13, 2020:   

    The AP Program is closely monitoring the updates and guidance about the coronavirus (COVID-19) provided by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and other leading health organizations. Our first concern is for the health and safety of students, their families, and their school communities.

    To help schools and students, we’re focused on:

    • Supporting student learning of the remaining content and skills in the course.
    • Providing flexible and streamlined testing opportunities and partnering with colleges and universities to ensure that students can still receive the college credit they have been striving to earn all year long.

    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.
