Don't know if your school is part of the 2018 AP Implementation? Contact your school with any questions or concerns. The best bet is to ask for the "AP Coordinator" or the administrator over Advanced Placement.
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!
We have used Total Registration for two years now and it has been an outstanding experience. We have a large AP program and Total Registration has saved me hours since I no longer have to enter all of the test registration information on spreadsheets. They have reports for things that you don't even realize you need, but have been very useful. If I have any problems, questions or suggestions, they are very quick to help and respond. They are very knowledge about the AP program and very customer focused.
I can't ever imagine having our AP registration without Total Registration.
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.
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.
As the AP Coordinator of a large suburban high school, I was saved this year by Total Registration. With budget cuts to our district (as many of yours), the sole responsibility for registering, administering, and paying for AP exams falls to me. In past years, I had to create and receive the registrations, write receipts by hand, create an Excel spreadsheet, and triple check that the exam order was correct. Completing all of the above and more, Total Registration gave me time to devote to other duties and made my life less stressful at the busiest time of year in school buildings. Thank you, TR!
