Here are the STAAR review packets I talked about on Friday: Quick STAAR Review Termsand STAAR Yellow Card Key Terms. Find about 30 minutes prior to Wednesday morning to look over any unknown terms/people. We will have some class copies of these to look at Monday and Tuesday in class.
General information about AP testing from the counselors (VERY IMPORTANT!!)
IMPORTANT REMINDERS FOR STUDENTS TAKING AP EXAMS:
AP exam season begins Monday, May 4 and continues through May 15.
MORNING EXAMS: Exam begins at 8:00 a.m. SHARP so arrive at 7:45 a.m.
Following your exam, you will report to your 4th period class and follow the rest of your regular schedule.
Students who arrive after 8:00 will not be able to enter the testing room.
AFTERNOON EXAMS: Exams begin at 12:30 p.m. SHARP so arrive at 12:15 p.m.
You will be dismissed for lunch at 11:30 if you have an afternoon exam.
Students who arrive after 12:30 will not be able to enter the testing room.
Please remind your AP students that it is essential that they find their name on the AP rosters in the cafeteria, to determine whether they are testing in the small gym or the gray gym, and to find their testing row number. There are 20 rows of 15 desks in the small gym, and 20 rows of 12 desks in the gray gym.
Please also encourage students who are testing in the GRAY gym to enter the gym through the door on the north end of the building. (that is the door by the competition gym where we have pep rallies.)
If you have morning and afternoon exams on the same day, you are STRONGLY ADVISED to bring a lunch!
You will not have time to leave campus to eat.
Check the south wall in the cafeteria for Exam locations. Most AP exams will be in the
Building A Small Gym or the Building A Gray Gym. Digital exams will be in specified computer labs.
Bring the following items to your exam:
• Picture I.D.
• Several sharpened No. 2 pencils with erasers.
• Black or dark blue ballpoint pens for free-response questions in most exams. Please do not bring felt tip or jell pens.
• A watch…. You are responsible for pacing yourself during the exam.
• Calculators… Calculus, Chemistry, Physics, Statistics and Biology.
• Social Security Number (optional)
Do Not Bring – Cell phones, and other electronic devices, food or drink (even water), watches that beep, highlighters, dictionaries or scratch paper are NOT allowed during AP exams and breaks. Possession of a cell phone during these exams could invalidate your exam score.
There is no room for back-packs in the testing area. They should be left in your locker or your car. If back packs are brought to the testing area, they will be stored, unsecured, in the hallways.
Have a great night!
