    ANNOUNCEMENTS:

    FBISD 2021 AP Exam Administration Dates

    College Board had provided districts, during this unique year, with three exam administration window options as well as the option for in-school pencil/paper exam formats (for all AP courses) and at-home digital exam formats for 25 AP courses. College Board will not be offering both exam formats during each of the three administration windows, and some administration windows have conflicts with FBISD’s academic calendar.

     

    Because FBISD realizes the importance of traditional in-school pencil/paper exams, the district will offer one face-to-face exam administration for each AP course. For those specific 25 AP courses available for the at-home digital exam format, a later, at-home digital testing option will be extended to FBISD students to allow for additional time to prepare, in consideration of instructional days lost due to the winter storm district closure. It is important to note that College Board does not have at-home digital exams available for World Language and Music Theory courses due to the nature of the exam; therefore, these exams will be in school paper and pencil exams.

     

    The table below includes all exam administration dates available to FBISD students. Also included is a list of considerations in choosing an exam administration date as well as a chart explaining key differences between the 2020 and 2021 Digital AP Exams. It is important to note that all AP exams, regardless if a student is currently learning virtually or face-to-face, will automatically default to the in-school pencil/paper AP exam date through College Board. However, if a student is unable to come to campus or would like to request an At-Home Digital Exam (for eligible courses), the student must complete Digital Exam Request form. Because the campus AP coordinator must update the AP exam administration for each digital exam request with College Board and plan for exam administration, this form must be completed by April 7.

    UPDATED to reflect the current FBISD dual learning model master schedule.

     

    VERY IMPORTANT: Particularly during the 2020-21 school year, the student should continue to monitor and confirm that the AP exam order status in their MyAP account through College Board accurately reflects the AP exams ordered. No AP exam will be ordered that is not reflected in MyAP. It is the student’s responsibility to notify the AP coordinator immediately if they believe there is an error.

     

    Steps to Ordering an AP Exam:

     

    • Students being taught by an AP Teacher from the home campus in a traditional AP course with end of course exam
      • Use the specific class section join code to enroll in the teacher’s AP Classroom to access all AP resources
      • Change the exam status from “undecided” to “yes”
      • Pay the corresponding AP exam fee through the school webstore

     

    • Students enrolled in a traditional AP course with an end of course exam being taught by a teacher at a different campus than the student’s home campus
      • Use the specific class section join code to enroll in the teacher’s AP Classroom to access all AP resources
      • Do NOT change the exam status inside AP Classroom (this will order the exam to be taken at the teacher’s home campus, not the student’s)
      • Contact the AP Coordinator at the student’s home campus and use the specific join code to enroll in the “Exam Only” section for the course at the student’s home campus.
      • Pay the corresponding AP exam fee through the school webstore
      • Reese Technical Center AP Students: enroll in the Reese teacher’s AP Classroom, register for the AP Exam at the home campus by completing the following form: Reese AP Exam Registration, and pay the associated exam fees using the home campus webstore.

     

    • Student enrolled in an AP course that has a portfolio component (regardless of what campus the AP Teacher is from)
      • Use the specific class section join code to enroll in the teacher’s AP Classroom to access all AP resources. The AP Teacher will have a unique join code for the student’s home campus.
      • Change the exam status from “undecided” to “yes”
      • Pay the corresponding AP exam fee through the school webstore

     

    • Student who is unable to enroll in AP Classroom to order an exam
      • FBISD understands that due to the overlapping timelines with FBISD student scheduling updates and the upcoming AP exam order deadline, a student may be unable to enroll in an AP Classroom at this time,
      • Contact the campus AP Coordinator to receive an “AP Exam Only” join code to ensure an AP exam order is placed for that course prior to the deadline.
      • Pay the corresponding AP exam fee through the school webstore
      • As soon as it is available, use the specific class section join code to enroll in the teacher’s AP Classroom to access all AP resources

     

    • Home school students who plan to take an AP exam must contact the campus AP Coordinator directly to register
