Advanced Placement (AP) Exams

https://apstudents.collegeboard.org/about-ap-exams
10-12District approx. 2-3 hours long depending on the content 5/4-5/15AP Exams are standardized exams designed to measure how well students have 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 you’ve learned—for example, AP Art and Design students submit a portfolio of work for scoring.Students who obtain at least 3 on their AP exam can be considered by their college or university for credit meaning they might be able to skip introductory classes and go straight into higher-level classes. It might also mean that they can skip courses that the college requires students to take to fulfill general education requirements.

Use this link (https://apstudents.collegeboard.org/getting-credit-placement) to review more details about AP credit policies by college or university.
Students obtain their rerults through the College Board online score reporting system in July

*Because of its sampling approach, NAEP administration only impacts one school in the district. Parents will receive a separate, specific notice if their child's school was selected for participation by NJ DOE and the U.S. National Center for Education Statistics (NCES).
NAEP is the only measure of how students across the nation are performing in various subject areas. It informs us how student performance has changed over time and allows states and cities to compare their progress with each other and the nation as a whole.While Individual Student Reports are not available as part of the NAEP program, the results of NAEP are released as the Nation's Report Card. Results are provided as scale scores and achievement levels for the nation, state and urban districts by gender, socioeconomic status, race/ethnicity, and other demographic information. The results include an analysis of performance on each item, allowing schools and district to unpack the differentiated meanings of proficiency and mastery in a very detailed way. October
