For the 2018 AP Exams, our 11th Year of our AP Exam Registration Service, we served 1220 schools, registering more than 525,000 students for over 1 Million AP Exams. That is approximately 20% of all the AP Exams schools administer for the College Board. We continue to print the student data directly on the AP answer sheest saving students and school staff significant time. In 2018, we printed student data on more than 325,000 AP answer sheets saving students approximately 240,000 hours.
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!
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.
THANK YOU FOR DOING THE PRE-PRINTED ANSWER SHEETS!!! It did save our AP teachers an enormous amount of time. We have each AP teacher complete answer sheets with their classes, and with them being printed it gave them instructional time back. It also prevented many errors because kids would always fill them out incorrectly. Keep up the great work, it did truly help with a huge job.
This was my second year as the AP Coordinator and I love Total Registration! I would not have made it through my first year without using TR, and I found I needed it just as much this year. Everything works—the student registration is so easy, Total Registration collects all the money and our business office loves that part! All of the reports are very helpful, including room rosters and seating charts to print. TR also sends reminders about due dates, like when to order the tests! Everything to keep me on track. The service also emails and texts the students and parents their exam schedules as a reminder. Customer service is excellent, I always hear back within an hour or so to get answers to my questions, and they are always trying to make things easier for us. I will only run my AP exams with Total Registration!
Total Registration's service is priceless. The time it saves and the stress it relieves is worth its weight in gold. We use TR for PSAT and AP, and look forward to using it for IB registration in 2015. The ease of the TR site and support team really makes registration, correspondence, reports, accounting, and the entire process seamless.
We Love Total Registration!
