Advanced Placement Exams in DoDEA

AP Exams

Advanced Placement Program

AP Exams are standardized exams designed to measure how well students mastered the content and skills of a specific AP course. Most AP courses have an end-of-year paper-and-pencil exam, but a few courses have different ways to assess what students have learned—for example, AP Art and Design students submit a portfolio of work for scoring.

All DoDEA Advanced Placement (AP) courses are approved by College Board’s curriculum requirements via the AP course audit designation. AP courses are designed to meet the same clearly articulated college-level criteria across high schools. Curricular requirements represent the core elements of the AP courses and are derived from the College Board’s AP course description which offers college-level curricula and examinations to high school students. All DoDEA AP teachers have approved AP course audits allowing them to teach the core College Board AP course/class curricula requirements.

Student Participation

All high school students in grades 9th through 12th enrolled in an AP course will take the corresponding AP Exam. High school students not currently enrolled in a DoDEA AP course(s) who wish to take the regularly scheduled AP Exam and are eligible for enrollment in a DoDEA school on a tuition-free basis, the parent/sponsor must submit a written request to the principal which includes the parents/sponsors’ name and contact information, student’s name, high school student is currently enrolled in, grade level, title of the AP Exam and the reason for the request. If a high school student has unusual circumstance that prevents them from participating during the regularly scheduled AP Exam, the parent/sponsor must submit a written request to the principal for Late AP Exams approval.

AP Exam Score Report Results

Students may access their exam score reports through their College Board account. The high school principals and AP teachers may also access their students’ AP Exam Score Reports through their educator College Board accounts. College Board provides various resources to the score reports for educators, students and parents at the following links:
