Having students complete identification information ahead of time in a preadministration session can save 30 minutes or more on exam day.
Answer Sheet Shipment
If you order preadministration materials, you will receive a shipment containing a booklet about completing the AP answer sheet and holding a preadministration session. We encourage you to share it with proctors. The booklet includes the following resources:
- Sample AP answer sheet
- How to complete the AP answer sheet
- Updated answer sheet fields
- The importance of supplying consistent identification information
- How to hold a preadministration session
- Preadministration instructions
Please note: A preadministration session cannot be conducted for AP Chinese, Japanese, or Studio Art.
Download Preadministration Tools
- A presentation for the 2018 test administration designed to assist coordinators or proctors with holding a preadministration session will be available for download in early 2018.
- A PDF copy of the AP Preadministration Instructions will be available in early spring, ahead of shipment, in the AP Coordinator Resource Library for your review.
