  • Galena AP Exam Administration 2021

    Based on recent information/clarification with AP Services this morning, all students taking digital exams must complete "exam set up" on the computer they are going to test with 1-3 days before they take their AP exam.   What this really means: 

    • any Galena student taking a digital exam AT SCHOOL on the exam day should use their own personal laptop Students cannot "show up" on the day of the exam expecting to use a different computer/laptop here at Galena.  Students testing at school will need to bring their personal laptop to school at some point before exam day to get connected to the guest wi-fi network AND on exam day.  Please share this with your "testing at Galena on exam day" students.
    • any Galena student taking a digital exam AT SCHOOL that does not have access to a laptop:  Ms Dunne needs to know before May 4th so she can issue one.   

    It is the student's responsibility (whether testing at Galena OR at home) to:


    • a)  download and install the digital testing application on their testing device (the app is available and should be downloaded now)
    • b)  practice with example questions (this digital practice needs to happen BEFORE taking their test on exam day)
    • c)  complete the "exam set-up" in the digital testing app on the device they are going to test with 1-3 days before each AP exam


    • d)  check-in (30 minutes before official start time) to their digital AP exam to complete final pre-exam checks.  Students can only "check in" on the device they used to complete exam set up.  Students testing on campus need to remember to bring their device to school on exam day and should arrive on campus at the time posted on the exam schedule! 
    • e) submit exam responses when the exam is over

    Ms. Dunne needs to know what "at home on test day" students want to come to school to take their AP exam by Friday, May 7th.​
