You may be thinking it’s October and your student missed the chance to take a full-year AP class. But ALVS offers students the flexibility to start now and work at their own pace. They are supported by experienced teachers in quality digital courses that are designed to help them feel confident and prepared to take the AP Exam in May.
To make the process as simple as possible, we compiled a checklist to help you make sure your student is squared away and ready to take the AP Exam next Spring.
✓ Find an AP® coordinator to get your student registered.
Your school should be able to put you in touch with the AP® coordinator to help get the process going for you. Typically, a school counselor can help get your student registered.
✓ Register for AP® Exams by Nov. 15, 2022.
AP® Coordinators need to order the test by November 15th, 2022, for full-year AP courses and first-semester AP courses. You can check out more official deadlines on the College Board website.
✓ Mark your calendar for AP® Exams in May 2023.
The 2023 AP® Exams will be administered in schools over two weeks in the spring of 2023 (May 1 – 5 and May 8 – 12). For the complete AP exam schedule and late testing information, please visit the College Board website.
✓ Study for the AP® Exam!
Your student’s AP® teacher should be able to provide them with access to a resource called AP Classroom that is on the College Board’s website AP® Classroom includes a suite of digital tools that teachers can use throughout the year to help prepare your student for the AP® Exam.
Students can join individual teacher’s classrooms to access resources such as daily videos, topic questions, and progress checks. Additionally, they can get personalized feedback on the skills and topics they learn throughout the course. Students have access to the AP® Classroom even if they complete their AP course prior to the spring exam date.
Within the “Exam Preparation” section of the course, you can find all practice materials and resources, including scoring guidelines and student responses, how the test will be structured, and strategies for success on the exam.
Students enrolled in ALVS online AP® Courses get access to AP® Classroom so that they can use College Board resources such as AP® practice or released exam questions using the AP® Question Bank.
✓ Get Support From ALVS
Apex Learning Virtual School teachers know what is expected of students on AP® exams. The tests within ALVS AP Courses are structured just like the actual AP Exam. There is a computer scored test and a free response teacher scored test. Our courses are not only content aligned but also formatted exactly like the exams students will see in May.
Almost all our teachers have been AP® exam readers in the past and they all stay up to date with their AP course training by attending the virtual workshops offered by the College Board. Our dedicated team of experienced AP teachers are regularly monitoring student progress, encouraging and guiding students along the way, and providing detailed feedback on each assignment.
ALVS AP® Courses include a variety of activities. Your student will read, watch, listen, inquire, write, and discuss topics that will be tested on the AP Exams. Students can check their comprehension in real-time with interactive assessments so they can decide if they need additional review, support from their teacher, or to move forward.
