AP Updates for Schools Impacted by COVID-19

As schools and communities navigate the unprecedented challenges posed by the coronavirus (COVID-19) outbreak, the health and safety of educators and students are the AP Program’s top priorities. The school closures make it necessary to change the way AP Exams and learning take place for 2019-2020.  Here’s how College Board is supporting schools:

  • College Board is providing free remote learning resources. 
  • College Board is investing in the development of a new at-home testing option.
AP Exam Administration Changes

Advanced Placement Exams schedule for May 2020 will NOT be taking place on campus as scheduled.  Instead, College Board is making the following changes to the way AP Exams will be administered:

  • Traditional face-to-face exam administrations will not take place. Students will take a 45-minute online free-response exam at home.
  • Students will be able to take these streamlined exams on any device they have access to—computer, tablet, or smartphone. Taking a photo of handwritten work will also be an option.

  • The exam questions are designed and administered in ways that prevent cheating; we use a range of digital security tools and techniques, including plagiarism detection software, to protect the integrity of the exams.

  • Scoring at-home work for an AP Exam is not new to the AP Program. For years the AP Program has received and scored at-home student work as part of the exams for the AP Computer Science Principles and AP Capstone courses.
  • The full exam schedule, specific free-response question types that will be on each AP Exam, and additional testing details will be available by April 3.
  • College Board will unlock any relevant free-response questions in AP Classroom for digital use so students can access all practice questions of the type that will appear on the exam.
    Online AP Exam Preparation Resources

    Beginning on Wednesday, March 25, students can attend free, live AP review courses, delivered by AP teachers from across the country. These courses:

    Technology Needs
    We recognize that some AP students may have technology barriers that prevents them from fully participating in the programs being offered. Working with partners, we will invest so that these students have the tools and connectivity they need to review AP content online and take the exam. If students need mobile tools or connectivity, they can reach out directly to College Board.
