This is the last big push for the AP Stat Exam on Friday! I hope you’ve been doing the Stats Medic review, even if you didn’t submit them for grades. Also, I hope you will participate in one or two of the mock exams I’ll be doing this week. Those who did the one today thought it was beneficial!

FRIDAY, MAY 22 – AP STATISTICS EXAM at 2:00 p.m. GOOD LUCK! I am 100% CONFIDENT that you will do well!
To My Honors Algebra 2 Students:
I enjoyed being your Honors Algebra 2 teacher in person and through digital learning. Although we didn’t have the time together that we should have, I’m very proud of you for sticking with it and doing your best under difficult circumstances. Learning math online is NOT easy! So I hope when we are back in the classroom, you will appreciate your next math teacher and your fellow classmates. And hopefully I’ll get to be your teacher again in AP Statistics! But until then…
I hope you have a great summer! Take care and stay healthy! Love, Mrs. Jones
Hopefully none of you had problems completing your other tests last week. If so, be patient as this is a totally new process for everyone involved – be thankful College Board has worked a way to get you to take the test. Read over these notes – especially about how to upload your answers to the test. Preparation will relieve you from some of the possible problems you may encounter this Friday.
Make sure your kids log-in 30 minutes prior to the exam. There was a log jam of students and they didn’t get in right away.
If they have the e-mail e-ticket, that is your best way to log in. Yes, you can log in through AP classroom, but those logins were delayed a little.
NOTE: There is a long security paragraph that they have to type in. They have to type all of it word for word. They could not publish it during the practice ones b/c it is a security issue. I am just giving you heads up of what happened.
NOTE Part 2: Make sure they copy/paste their answers from a word document. From discussions, that is the BEST way to do it. Make sure they SUBMIT question 1 and then again SUBMIT question 2 (or whatever parts your individual exams may have). They will get a CONFIRMATION saying they have submitted correctly. I do not know 100% of the format of your individual exams, but I know a lot of us have similar approaches on format.
If you are going to take photos from your iPhone:
There is a lot of information out there now about the format of the pictures required for AP Testing. Please take a look at the below information for iPhone users. This summarizes steps that the students need to take to ensure the proper picture settings in a nice, easy way.
Where do students go to request a makeup exam? What information do they need?
Go to: cb.org/requestmakeup Students will need their original exam e-ticket for the exam they wish to makeup (that includes the unique makeup request key for that exam), AP ID, first and last name, email address, and the reason why they were unable to complete the exam. The makeup request key for the exam can also be found on the student’s MyAP homepage. The ENTIRE makeup request key must be copied exactly as shown. After completing all fields and clicking the submit button, a confirmation screen will appear and a confirmation email will be sent.
If a student had trouble attempting to request a makeup, they should try again – copying and pasting the exam-specific makeup key EXACTLY. Requests should be submitted within 48 hours of their original testing time.
How do students know that their makeup testing request was successfully submitted?
After submitting the submit button, a confirmation screen will appear. A confirmation email will also be sent. See below.
The student can’t recall if they saw the makeup test request confirmation screen or can’t find the confirmation email – what should they do?
If the student saw the confirmation screen or received a confirmation email, they should be confident that their request was successfully submitted. If there was an issue with submission of the makeup request, an error message would appear and neither confirmation (screen or email) would have been received. If they are having trouble locating the email, the student should search their email inbox or spam filter for an email sent by: ‘Advanced Placement Program’ with the subject line: ‘2020 AP Student Makeup Test Request Form Submitted’. If they can find no evidence of confirmation, it is possible that the student didn’t complete the process or click the submit button. In this case, the student should complete a ‘new’ makeup testing request form: cb.org/requestmakeup
The student was told that they did not ‘qualify’ to retest but believes they do – what should they do?
The first few questions of the form are designed to help students understand if they need to submit a makeup request. They are asked: Did you have technical difficulties? Did you have a significant interruption? If a student answers “no” to both, they are not considered eligible and will see a message like the one below telling them that they do not quality to retest.
If students feel that this was in error or that they might have incorrectly answered the initial questions and wish to start over, they should return to cb.org/requestmakeup and complete a ‘new’ makeup testing request form.
What is next for a student after completing the makeup testing request form?
Students will receive an email confirming their request has been received. Later, an email approving or declining the request will be sent the week of May 25. Students will receive approval for any of the following types of issues, or similar ones: sickness; significant interruptions from family members; battery failures; power outages; technical disruptions. Running out of time to submit a response on exam day is not a valid reason to request makeup testing. If approved, the E-ticket will be emailed two days prior to the makeup exam.
Does completing a makeup testing request form mean any responses submitted in the May exam will not be scored?
The makeup request form requires student to accept ““If the makeup request is approved, the original exam will not be scored.” If the makeup request is approved, any responses received for the May exam will not be scored.
In general, I’d recommend the following steps to get ready for the makeup
1) Don’t use the same device for Makeup.
2) Simplify the process as much as possible. Stop using multiple devices, etc.
3) Encourage using the demo.
Here are some of the issues they’ve had during the first few days of AP testing. Please read so this doesn’t happen to you!
- 🔎 Read the question VERY CLOSELY. Lots of students are missing points because they misread.
- ⏰ Don’t wait until the final seconds to upload. Start uploading before the 5 minute window just to be safe.
- ⌨️ We recommend typing your response. It takes 10 seconds to copy/paste and is safer than uploads
- ✍️ If you hand write, upload the right format. iPhone images default to HEIC which will not work. Convert images to PNG or JPG
- You can change this setting in your phone so it takes JPG. Settings > Camera > Format > “Most Compatible”
- 🌐 Use ethernet instead of WIFI if you can. It seems like all of the uploading issues we are seeing had been on 4G or WIFI.
This week we will be wrapping up the semester in Honors Algebra 2. I have enjoyed being your teacher in-person and digitally! I hope to see you all when we are back on campus!
