Total Registration has supported over 50+ schools that have piloted the College Board's Fall AP Exam Ordering. From these schools we have learned about new challenges facing AP Coordinators and have added new tools to assist with these challenges.
These new tools are on top of the existing TR tools/features:
Total Registration will once again compile the 2019 AP Exam Score Distributions as the College Board releases them. While you are patiently waiting, you can view the AP Exam Score Distributions for the last 8 years here. In addition to the score distributions, the report includes insightful comments from Trevor Packer, Head of AP for the College Board, and the ability to compare the distributions for the past 8 years for each exam at the click of a button.
Take a couple of minutes to view our short AP Service video overview. Here you can see how simple AP Exam Registration can be.
Depending on the speed of your Presenter connection, you may want to make the video full screen and increase the resolution (720p).
Having the answer sheets pre-printed eliminated hours of pre-admin sessions, as well as eliminating incomplete answer sheets. The big and small labels were so helpful - we purchased a bar code scanner and scanned all of our AP numbers into TR.
I can't tell you how happy we have been with your product. Initially I was not interested in online registration for AP but your product made it do easy! We can't wait for the new pre-printing of the student info feature!
As a first year high school testing coordinator, at a fairly large school, I knew nothing about AP. A fellow coordinator had used Total Registration and encouraged me to do the same. I loved the ease of it and the reports I could run to help me with ordering, with free/reduced lunch waivers, counts, and communication with those registered. The kids could register at their convenience and parents could pay online. I hate to think of the record keeping I would have to do had I not used TR. It was a life saver.
We don't know how we would have survived ordering our AP Exams today without our ability to reconcile our Total Registration and College Board data. Total Registration has been invaluable to our AP Program.
Our school used Total Registration for the first time this year, based upon several conversations I had as AP Coordinator with Mike Elings, General Manager. I was able to see how the registration process worked and thought that it would be worth our time trying this out. In the past, I have had students pay at our school site, and there were errors in what they were paying for. Due to the volume of tests that our students take, accuracy is important. I particularly liked that they could select what they wanted to pay for and that teachers could check the rosters of who had paid. In addition, I was able to state our school policies easily so that there were no errors. I also liked that they had to supply a working e-mail address for both student and parent (our school's e-mails that we have on file are sometimes wrong), so if I needed to contact them, I could easily.
We will definitely be using Total Registration in the future for AP exam registration!
