Testing

  • HSA & PARCC Testing
  • AP Testing - The AP Program is collaboration between motivated students, dedicated teachers, and committed high schools, colleges, and universities. Since 1955, the AP Program has enabled millions of students to take college-level courses and exams, and to earn college credit or placement while still in high school. Each AP Exam has a corresponding AP course and provides a standardized measure of what students have learned in the AP classroom. AP Exams are rigorous, multiple-component tests in 37 subjects that are administered at high schools each May.

    Each AP Exam contains a free-response section (either essay or problem-solving) and a section of multiple-choice questions. The modern language exams also have a speaking component, and the AP Music Theory Exam includes a sight-singing task. Each AP Exam is given an overall grade of 1, 2, 3, 4, or 5, with 5 indicating a student who is extremely well qualified to receive college credit and/or advanced placement based on an AP Exam grade.
