Updates to Available AP Score Reports for 2020
Instructional Planning Reports will not be available for 2020 AP Exams. Get the latest information about how the AP Program is supporting schools impacted by the coronavirus.
Accessing Your Score Reports
In order to access AP Score Reports for Educators all authorized AP teachers, AP coordinators, principals, and district administrators must have a College Board Education Professional account. You may already have a Professional account if you have used College Board online services such as AP Registration and Ordering, AP Classroom, the AP Course Audit, or AP Potential™.
AP Score Reports for Educators features two primary access roles:
- AP Teacher: A teacher who has been authorized through the AP Course Audit to teach one or more AP subjects.
- Administrator: A principal, AP coordinator, or other school or district administrator.
For information about which reports are available to teachers and to school and district administrators, see the Report Descriptions page.
Access for Teachers
Only teachers authorized through the AP Course Audit for the most current year for which AP score data has been released have access to their students’ exam scores online.
- Teachers must have their course authorization renewed every year to continue to have access to current and previous years’ reports. For example, teachers authorized for the 2019-20 school year are able to view their 2020 administration reports now.
- Check your course authorization status at AP Course Audit before February of every year. If your authorization is not up to date, contact your AP Course Audit administrator at your school.
- If you are a teacher with course authorization under the general state homeschool organization, you will not have access to score reports via AP Score Reports for Educators.
Access for Principals and AP Coordinators with AP Course Audit Accounts
In June 2020, the College Board will email 2020 access codes to AP coordinators and principals designated on their school’s 2019-20 Participation Forms and to 2019-20 AP Course Audit administrators.
Access for School and District Administrators and Others Without AP Course Audit or AP Registration and Ordering Accounts
School and district administrators who do not currently have AP Course Audit or AP Registration and Ordering access will need an access code to view 2020 scores online.
For school-level access, contact your principal or AP coordinator for the access code.
For district-level access, please have your district superintendent reach out to AP Services for Educators to add or update users for district access.
Note: If you have an account but did not access previous years’ AP Exam scores online in the past year and a half, your access will be deactivated.
Sharing a School Access Code
Authorized school administrators may share their school access code to provide access to AP Score Reports for Educators with up to five staff members. School administrators are advised to keep access codes in a secure place and distribute only to staff with the appropriate permissions to view student-level data.
Granting Access to School Department Chairs
School department chairs can either request that an administrator forward score data to them or the school's principal may provide them with an access code that will give them school administrator access. With school administrator-level access, staff members will have access to all student-level results from the school, including subjects outside their department.
Note: If a department chair is also an AP teacher and can access score data for the AP subjects they are currently authorized to teach through the AP Course Audit, adding school administrator access will supersede their teacher access.
Updating Account Information
AP Score Reports for Educators uses the information that you specified when creating or managing your College Board Education Professional account. If you need to change personal information, such as your school, title, or contact information, click on your profile icon in the top right corner of any page of the portal.
Users with Multiple Roles or School/District Affiliations
If you work at multiple schools or districts, you will be prompted to select the organization you wish to see reports for when you log in to AP Score Reports for Educators. You will only be able to see reports for one organization at a time. If you wish to see the score reports for another organization you are associated with, click on the “Change Organization” link on your report homepage.
If you have multiple roles within an organization (e.g., teacher and administrator), the system will default to the role with the highest-level of access.
Safeguards Against the Misuse of Data
The College Board is committed to protecting the privacy of students’ data. We depend on administrators in particular to guard against such misuses of data and discourage schools from using AP score reports for the purposes of evaluating or comparing teachers. For this reason, all visitors to this site agree to certain legal terms and conditions.
Additional safeguards include:
- Ability to access section-level data.
- Principals can choose to restrict AP teachers from accessing individual students’ exam results. The principal must contact AP Services for Educators to make the request, and would then be responsible for sharing the data directly with teachers. Teachers can still retain access to the AP Instructional Planning Reports, which do not include individual student-level data.
Principals and superintendents can completely remove access for certain staff members (i.e., staff who are no longer employed at a school or district) by contacting AP Services for Educators.
