Welcome to the AP Testing Program at RHS!
2020-21 ADVANCED PLACEMENT TESTING SCHEDULE
Attention AP Students:
Please review the RHS AP Exam Schedule to plan accordingly.
If you registered for an AP Exam that will be taken digitally and at home, you should have received an email from Ms. Zarco on April 19th with important instructions for preparing for the Digital AP Exams. If you are registered for an AP Exam that will be administered at school, you will receive a notice with instructions and testing location details a few weeks prior to your exam date.
IMPORTANT INFORMATION FOR AP STUDENTS TAKING A DIGITAL AP EXAM:
There are 4 important steps students must take in order to prepare for the Digital AP Exams.
Step 1 is to download the AP Digital Exam app onto the computer you will use to take the exam. Our district technology department has done this step for all students and has downloaded the app onto your assigned Chromebook. If you would like to use a personal device, you will need to download the app onto your personal device at your own risk. We highly recommend you use your district-issued Chromebook as it is set up to meet all of the AP technical requirements.
Step 2 is to practice using the AP Digital Exam App, which includes access to the exam day flow and multiple choice and free-response questions.
Step 3 is to complete the exam set up on the Chromebook or device 3 days before each digital exam.
Step 4 is to check into the exam 30 minutes before the exam start time.
The exam schedule and detailed instructions were emailed to students and are linked here. We highly recommend you read through the instructions carefully.
We will hold drop-in sessions every Wednesday from 9:30-10:30am via Zoom: https://vusd-us.zoom.us/j/97268595691 to answer any Digital AP Exam questions.
Thank you and please contact Ms. Zarco or Mr. Cole, RHS AP Coordinators, if you have any questions.
