    2022 AP Exams

    Our AP Exams provide students the opportunity to demonstrate mastery of materials covered in AP courses and, depending upon results and individual university policy, possibly earn college credit or placement.  

    We hope that you have been enjoying the spring weather!

    On May 2 we begin three weeks of AP exam administration at Redwood with the help of an amazing group of volunteers from our community.

    We know this is an exciting and stressful time and encourage you to practice important self-care including getting a good night's sleep the night before exams, eating balanced, healthy meals on the day of your exams, bringing a drink and a nutritious snack for the break and knowing that you have worked hard to get to this point and will do a great job!

    You may log into your Total Registration account to view the rooms that you have been assigned to for each of your exams.

    This list of room assignments will be posted outside of Rm 107 today at the end of 6th period; this list will be in order of student ID #s.

    For exams beginning at 8:00 a.m., please arrive on campus at 7:30; for exams beginning at 12:00, please arrive on campus by 11:30. Arriving late to an exam may mean that you will not be able to take your test that day and will be moved to one of the late testing sessions the week of 16th. Students are not allowed to park in the visitors parking during testing; these spaces will be used for the proctors who are volunteering for the exams so please plan accordingly.

    When you arrive at your assigned testing room, you are expected to be seated immediately and to remain in that seat for the entirety of the exam. We are on a tight schedule for the exams this year and your cooperation in getting settled in quickly and efficiently is imperative so that we can be sure the tests start and finish on time. If you are taking two exams on one day, please be sure that you have planned your path ahead of time to get to your second exam on time.

    College Board policy states that students may not be released from an exam until the exam has officially ended and all students have completed their exams so please do not ask to leave early. If you have any commitments outside of school, it is your responsibility to inform your coach or job of your testing obligation.

    You are responsible for knowing both the items that you can and cannot bring to an exam. It is a good practice to leave at home, in your locker or your car anything that you do not need for your exams. All phones will be collected at the beginning of each exam and will not be able to be accessed until all students have completed their exams. Some of the rooms can be cool so please be sure to dress accordingly.

    If you are taking an exam that allows for the use of a calculator, you must make sure that it meets the standards set forth by College Board. The use of any unapproved calculators can result in the cancellation of your scores. Please be sure that your calculator is in good working order before the exam, we do not supply calculators or extra batteries for the exams.

    On the day of the exam, you will be able to have a snack or drink during the break and only during the break unless you have approved accommodations from College Board that allow for drink/food during the exam. These items will remain underneath your seat during the exam until the break has been announced by the proctor. Students will be allowed to go the restroom one at a time during their tests and are expected to return immediately to the testing room. During the breaks in the exam, students are to stay in the testing room as directed by the proctors.

    While you are in an exam, your phones will need to be turned off and turned in to the proctors along with any other smartwatches or other electronic devices. A label will be provided for your phone so that it will be easy to pick up at the end of the exam. The security of all exams is extremely important and students are expected to adhere to all directions set forth by the proctors. Any instance of cheating will result in the cancellation of a student’s scores.

    If you are unable to attend a session for a scheduled exam for any reason, please notify Tanya Jaspering immediately. There are certain, specific circumstances under which we are allowed to have a student participate in the late testing window the week of May 16. If approved, an additional $50 late testing fee may apply.

    We look forward to having a successful testing season with your help and wish you all the best of luck on all of your exams!

    Instructional Resources:

    By having a College Board account and enrolling in their AP Class Section, students will have access to instructional resources that will support their classroom instruction.  Students will be able to access these resources through myap.collegeboard.org.

    For students who have taken an AP Course before (also if they've taken the PSAT and/or the SAT), they should already have a username and password to access their College Board account.  If a parent has created an account at College Board to sign up for SAT or ACT, the student should have a separate account with an email address that is NOT their student account provided through the district.

    For those new to the AP program, the student will need to create an account.

    Things to keep in mind about a student's College Board account:

    • Students who have created a College Board account for the PSAT/SAT should use the same username and password for the AP account.  They should not have two different College Board accounts.
    • Students who need to create an account or verify that they have an account, please access collegeboard.org
    • Students must have their own email address associated with their College Board Account.  By doing so, if they forget their login information, they can recover it easily.
    • Students should keep their username and password in a place they can access easily and quickly, perhaps on their phones.  They'll be needing this information numerous times throughout the year.
