2021 AP Digital Exam Information
All Rio Americano students will be taking their Digital Exams at home. The Digital Exams at home are full-length exams. The only exams which are being offered in person are the AP French exam and the AP Spanish exam. The exam schedule is posted on the Rio website under 2021 AP Digital Exam information.
Students can take their AP tests on a laptop or desktop computer (Mac, Windows, or school-managed Chromebooks), after they complete their exam setup on their computer, 1–3 days before the exam. You cannot share your computer with another student.
Chromebooks: Only school-managed Chromebooks can be used for testing; you cannot use a personal Chromebook or a tablet (IPAD/ Kindle/ Samsung) or phone.
**If you have a personal Chromebook or tablet (such as an IPAD or Kindle) that you typically use and do not have access to another device, please visit Kristine Dunn in the Vice-Principal’s office to check out a school-managed Chromebook.
Students must have access to WiFi throughout the exam.
