The College Board released the Digital Testing App on April 8th. Our IT Department is working to "push" the app to all student Chromebooks. We hope to have the app loaded into District-managed Student Chromebooks by end April 14th.
If students wish, they may download the Digital Testing App app to their personal laptop or Desktop computer, however, the app will not load to personal Chromebooks. The Technology Department is working on loading the app into school-issued Chromebooks.
Students will need to take two key steps to get ready for digital exams:
1. Download and install the 2021 AP digital testing application (to personal laptop or computer) and log in. You will need your College Board: Username and Password. Technology will push the app to District-managed student Chromebooks.
2. Practice with example questions in the app.
Digital practice will become available to all subjects by April 12. You will be able to practice with example questions and:
Try each type of multiple-choice and/or free-response question you will encounter on exam day.
Preview the flow of the exam and practice using the tools and features in the app.
Confirm that your technology works.
You will have access to two practice options:
Digital Practice: This is a longer option that you can use to fully explore the digital testing application.
App Dem: This is a shorter option you can use to quickly confirm that the application is correctly installed, that questions display appropriately, and that you can enter answers.
