Hear from Students and Educators

2023 in-school digital AP Exams build on a successful 2022 pilot at 550 schools.

“Typing essays is easier for students than writing by hand … No paper exams [for me] to worry about or handle.” 

- AP coordinator–Wisconsin

“The digital exams that we offered in the two available subject areas ran very smoothly. I believe the overall process was simple to understand and very successful.”
