Schools that have AP teachers with multiple class sections or multiple teachers teaching the same AP subject can get Subject Score Rosters and AP Instructional Planning Reports at the class section or teacher level. Class sections help teachers and schools:

  • See performance on a class level. Schools can get a direct view into the performance of individual classes so they can analyze the strengths and weaknesses of their curricula.
  • Ensure that each teacher sees only their own students' scores. Schools can control access to student scores when there is more than one teacher for an AP subject.

Creating Class Sections

Beginning in 2019-20, AP coordinators were able to create class sections in AP Registration and Ordering. Coordinators can view complete instructions for designating sections at Class Section Creation and Join Codes. Students enroll in their specific class sections at the beginning of the school year, generating the class section and teacher levels of the Subject Score Roster, and AP Instructional Planning Reports.

Viewing Reports

When users view their AP Instructional Planning Reports and Subject Score Rosters, they will be prompted to select section(s) for that subject and for that school year.

Teachers: The section(s) listed reflect the class sections created in AP Registration and Ordering to which that teacher has been assigned. Teachers may choose to run reports for an individual section, across all sections, or for a subset of sections.

School and District Administrators: The section(s) listed reflect the class sections created in AP Registration and Ordering for your school for the selected subject. Each teacher associated to a section is also listed, where applicable. You may choose to run this report for an individual teacher, across all your school’s sections, for a subset of sections, or for an individual section.

  • No Teacher Assigned Sections (visible to administrators): These are your school’s exam only sections, which include students who did not receive instruction at your school in this subject but for whom you submitted an exam order. These may include students who received instruction from an online provider or self-studied.
  • No Section/Exam Only Sections (visible to administrators): These include your school’s students for whom you did not instruct nor submit an exam order for. These may include students who received instruction from an online provider or self-studied.

Viewing Class Sections Prior to 2020

Before the 2019-20 school year, schools were encouraged to designate section numbers on students’ answers sheets during the exam administrations. This let schools access Subject Score Rosters and AP Instructional Planning Reports at the class section or teacher level.

Teachers: When teachers view their AP Instructional Planning Reports and Subject Score Rosters, they will be prompted to select the section(s) they taught for that subject and for that school year. Once they make their selections, they will see score data only for the sections they taught. If schools did not designate sections, all data are subsequently grouped by AP subject, allowing all AP teachers of that subject to see student scores for the entire student roster.

School and District Administrators: Administrators may see one or more of these options, depending on whether their school used sections or not:

  • All Students: If a school did not use sections for this subject, this includes all students who attended the school. If you are an online provider, this includes all students in this subject to whom you provided instruction.
  • Section Not Designated: If your school used sections for this subject, this group includes only those students who did not indicate a section on their answer sheet for this subject.
  • No Section/Exam Only Sections: Includes all students who attended your school but did not receive instruction at your school in this subject. This may be students who received instruction from an online provider or self-studied.

Editing or Correcting Section Numbers

  • If you find that students are missing from your reports, check to see if the student is in the correct section.
  • If you find that a student is appearing under the incorrect section on your 2020 Subject Score Roster report, your AP coordinator may update a student’s section in AP Registration and Ordering. View instructions for making a section update (.pdf/609 KB).
