These exams can be administered on managed Chromebooks, Macs, and Windows PCs. Internet connectivity is required throughout the setup process and exam administration.
Testing computers must be school owned and controlled. Chromebooks must be under management control of Google Workspace for Education. Headsets are also required for each student testing.
Review the setup and administration guide for complete information.
Important: If you have students taking the AP Chinese or AP Japanese Exams with a testing accommodation approved by the College Board SSD office, there are steps you may need to take by March 15 to ensure the accommodations will be available for students on exam day. Review the Testing Accommodations section in the setup and administration guide and complete any necessary steps by March 15.
In Late March 2023
We'll email AP coordinators in late March with all details needed to install, practice with, and administer the exams, including:
- The link to install the exam application on testing computers.
- Passwords and codes you and proctors will need to launch and administer exams on exam day.
If your testing computers already have the exam application installed from last year, you most likely won’t need to reinstall it. However, please wait to run the exam application until you receive the installation email from the AP Program in late March. If you attempt to run the exam application before we email you, you won’t be able to access the latest features for the 2023 AP Exams until you rerun readiness checks starting in late March.
