Advanced Placement exams are still going to be conducted in school buildings for certain students according to the Massachusetts Department of Elementary and Secondary Education. They have released their plan as to how to issue the AP exams, yet not spread COVID-19 infection. It is up to local schools to make sure the rules are followed.
According to their plan, students and staff will be required to wear face coverings at all times. All students and staff must apply hand sanitizer upon entering the building. Students will be monitored by staff while in the building while still maintaining social distance. Social distancing standards of at least 6 feet will be maintained before, during, and after test administration.
How will they protect students and staff from contracting COVID-19 from the beginning of the AP exams to end? Check back here as we will list how they plan on achieving this goal. Their AP testing plan may be a sign of what is to come for everyone once they decide to open up schools again for all students.
Advanced Placement exams for 2020 will still be conducted in-person at local schools on a limited basis, despite the COVID-19 pandemic. The option to test at a school will only be made to a restricted number of students. Only those students who do not have adequate access to a computer and internet connectivity at home will be allowed to take an AP exam in a school building. This shocking news is according to a newly released memo from the Massachusetts Department of Elementary and Secondary Education. They published guidance for Advanced Placement testing for school districts.
Check back here as we will post their plan as to exactly how they will be allowing students and staff into school buildings to conduct these tests, while keeping everyone safe from COVID-19.

It’s not the amount of time you devote, but what you devote to the time that counts.
Although the SAT tests are optional to get in to many colleges, high test scores can be an advantage when applying. Many college admissions specialists recommend high school students take the exams only if they expect to score well. Strong scores on the SAT and ACT exams will help you, but these colleges won’t hold it against you for not taking them.
More and more colleges each year realize the SAT is not an effective measure of student intelligence. The list of schools no longer requiring the SAT grows by the year. Several colleges including UMass Lowell and Salem State University have made the main SAT and ACT tests optional.
