The new AP classroom resources will help you plan and focus instruction and give you feedback throughout the year on the areas where individual students need additional focus. Completing the digital activation process at the start of the school year will give you immediate access to the new resources and will help ensure that your students can register for the exams by the new fall deadlines.

We’ll support you through the transition and let you know about upcoming opportunities to learn more about the new tools and processes.

Here are the events you should know about and the steps to get ready for the changes.


  • Winter:

    • January: New informational videos are available.


    • If you’re teaching a new 2019-20 AP course, submit the Course Audit Form and make sure it is approved by your school’s Course Audit administrator.
    • May: New informational videos and interactive, self-paced online modules are available.
  • August 1:

    • Registration and ordering and classroom support systems open.

    Before school starts:

    • Familiarize yourself with the system and start exploring the resources.
    • As you create your sequence and pacing calendars, consider ways to incorporate the unit guides and personal progress checks.
    • Consider how to use the AP question bank for daily checks on student understanding.
  • Fall:

    • In the first weeks of class:
      • Set up a class section in the system for each AP class you teach. Invite students to join unless your AP coordinator does this task. (It’s up to your school to designate who sets up class sections.)
      • Give your students the join code generated when your class section is created. They’ll need it to join the class and create their individual accounts.
      • Begin using the question bank and other resources and supports.
      • Ensure all your students are in the system.
