College Board AP Exam Resources
- AP Classroom User Guide for Students: This guide will show you how to use the features of AP Classroom effectively. You need a College Board student account to log into My AP (myap.collegeboard.org) and access AP Classroom. You may already have an account, from registering for SAT tests, viewing AP and PSAT/NMSQT scores, participating in the College Board Opportunity Scholarships program, etc. It’s important that you don’t create multiple College Board accounts. If you’re not sure whether you have a College Board account, they should contact AP Services for Students for verification before attempting to create a new account.
- AP Daily: Live Review is a series of live streamed sessions on YouTube, hosted by AP teachers from across the country, that help students prepare for the 2021 AP Exams. Sessions will be held Monday–Thursday, April 19–29. See the schedule on the website to find the time for your course and download the review syllabus. Recordings of each session will be available on YouTube and on AP Classroom for students to watch on demand if they can’t join live.
- About 2021 Digital AP Exams: Information from the College Board about the 2021 digital exams. More information, with specific CHS/CHCCS details will be shared with students prior to testing.
- NOTE: all CHCCS-issued Chromebooks have been loaded with the necessary AP testing app. Students will not need to download the testing app themselves.
- AP Credit Policy Search: Your AP scores could earn you college credit or advanced placement (meaning you could skip certain courses in college). Use this tool to find colleges that offer credit or placement for AP scores.
