Using Total Registration is fantastic. I appreciate being able to set deadlines and being able to go in to override it when needed. It keeps track of all registrations so the students and parents cannot come back and question their registration. Being able to approve fee reductions also lets them know in a timely manner if they are eligible or not. I did notice some of the registrations were done late at night which was convenient for the students and their parents.
I highly recommend Total Registration. I have about 500 students taking 900 exams, and I'm very good with data management so was considering just doing it myself. But I'm so glad that I used their system. Students register online which saves me tons of time accepting paper forms and retyping all the info into a database/spreadsheet plus any errors that might pop up. Reports are available from school or home. Mike Elings is very responsive and helpful too.
It really is a great system, and for around a dollar per test when you're collecting money anyway, I really can't think of any reason not to use it.
And let me tell you what a handy dandy tool this is (in reference to room assignments/seating charts)! I thought I would have to make up random seating charts for all my exams until I played around with your system. Thanks for responding to the ever-changing policies of the College Board and making my life so much easier during AP exam season!
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!
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!
This was my first time administering AP and IB exams. TR was user-friendly and the instructions were very clear. The customer support was also immediate. Creating seating charts and pulling rosters for individual exams was a great feature. Collecting registration fees, managing exam changes and balances was super easy. I am looking forward to using more features for the next academic year. I would recommend TR to all coordinators.
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.
I truly hope the College Board becomes more accepting of the Answer Sheet Printing process. It saved me and the students a TON of time. Using the bar code scanner to record AP numbers was awesome. Not holding pre-admin sessions was awesome. Not having to spend a so much time organizing answer sheets for students with multiple exams was awesome. I tell anyone who asks that Total Registration is AWESOME!
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!
I used to do a mail merge to make the labels for our students. I was skeptical that TR could do the labels as well as I did them. Guess what?! They were awesome! They had the exact information that I included, in the same order! I am very impressed with how well you know the needs of the AP coordinator! I LOVE that the answer sheets were put in order by exam and then by name! I just absolutely LOVE that we didn't have to re-alphabetize everything at the beginning! And the seating charts! LOVE! I am so thankful for you!!!
I would like to say thank you for your amazing system! It has made handling AP exams so much easier!! The customer service has been impressive and the Total Registration system makes the world of a difference! THANK YOU!!
Total Registration is a tremendously useful service that helps eliminate the stress of ordering AP exams. The site is easy to navigate, user-friendly, and cost-efficient. It helps to centralize the ordering process in addition to providing useful tools, such as the mandatory seating charts required for AP exams. I strongly recommend Total Registration, particularly for schools with high volume exams.
Thanks for being so easy to use and helping make my first year as AP Coordinator a pretty smooth one. I can not even imagine trying to register students with a paper registration... too much room for error. A few times when students would show up for tests and try to convince me that they had signed up, I could just look at the roster and tell them it came straight from TR and if you are not on the list, it is because you did not sign up... it worked.
I had two students approach me this week (exams start Monday) trying to tell me they registered when they didn't. I love Total Registration. I have a print-out to show students who began the registration process but who didn't complete it as well as a report of all students who registered and how they paid (check number, online transaction, or fee waiver). I have all the proof I need. No human error on our end. You make ordering and payment and report-printing a breeze. You provide class rosters as well as summary reports. This is so much easier than doing it in-house at our school. Thank you!!!
Utilizing Total Registration is the single best thing I have done as an AP Coordinator. I cannot imagine returning to life before Total Registration. With nearly 1100 exams administered each year, Total Registration has simplified my process tremendously. Better yet, they have helped address changing College Board requirements (seating charts) and continue to ease the chaos of our AP exam administration. Thank you. Thank you. Thank you!
I loved the ease of the system from the beginning to the end. The ease of registering online was great. The email feature to be able to contact students/parents was extremely useful. I hope that we can use online payment feature next year. Thanks so much!
Excellent product that came at a crucial moment for our school. Support was excellent, and the tools available within the product were very good and well thought out. I'm a fan.
I run very tight guidelines with regard to AP testing, sign up, etc. This program took 100% of the sign up out of the hands of my administrative assistant. Her time was saved. Because we decided to do this so late, I had all the forms prepared/copied/etc. so I hope next year that this will be less time consuming. The part I really loved was that parents didn't try to get me to waive the late fee or make any monetary adjustments. All via the web. I loved it!
TR's service made my first year as our school's AP Coordinator very easy and manageable. Once I got going on the service, I was always confident I knew what I needed to do and when it needed to be done. This was a huge relief navigating the cumbersome process of AP testing.
We have used Total Registration for the past two years at Doherty High School here in the Springs. Our process this year was even more streamlined than last year thanks to TR and their wonderful staff. Those of us who oversee the testing at Doherty have saved COUNTLESS hours of work through the use of your service. As always, I appreciate the quick responses that I receive from either Mike personally or your support staff when we have a question.
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!
I can't imagine doing the registration any other way now. It was scary for my anal self to jump on board and give up some control, but I have now done it for 2 years and will never go back. The biggest thing was not having to handle the money in house. Out of 485 exams, 123 were fee waiver students where some of those students have limited access to credit cards. The mail in system for those students was very easy and all of the students were serviced easily. Our bookkeeper was very happy to not have a ton of students coming in separately to pay! It also helped us stick to deadlines!
Total registration makes my life easier. The addition of the seating chart feature was very helpful as was the emailing and texting of the student's schedule along with comments from myself. I could not handle AP testing without Total Registration. Thanks so much for all you do!!
Total Registration has been a HUGE time-saver for us. This is my sixth year as the AP Coordinator for our school and by far the best registration/exam administration we've had, thanks to TR.
THANK YOU! Wonderful product, fantastic support, and a huge time saver for myself and our district. We will happily use Total Registration next year and I will enthusiastically endorse it to anyone.
I have used Total Registration for three years now to manage our AP exams and I honestly can't imagine doing it any other way. I find that my questions are answered very quickly and the support team is superb. It truly helps organize the many details one incurs when dealing with multiple exams and many students.
As a first year user of Total Registration, I must say I was very impressed with the functionality of the program. Not having to physically collect money from students was a tremendous time saver and alleviated the bookkeeping nightmare we usually endure."
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!
Thanks for the great product! We'll look forward to working with you again next year. You made this process FAR less stressful and prevented a few grey hairs.
I can't imagine why anyone would want to do AP Registration in-house. The time saved was invaluable! Not having to handle payments was wonderful! Can't say enough good things!
This service has been incredibly helpful to me. It has saved me a great deal of time, and it has doubled exam registration at my school. Next year my district is going to start requiring all students in AP courses to take the accompanying exam with the district paying for each exam. I hope that it is still economical enough to use Total Registration so that I have access to this wonderful organizational tool!
Not only did Total Registration streamline the entire registration process, it helped me set up classroom rosters for testing, simplified the identification of free & reduced lunch students, and made my life as a coordinator 100% easier. I cannot sing the praises of Total Registration enough! I am telling everyone I know!
I would have dropped dead three years ago without Total Registration Services - what a blessing it is to have you folks - you make me look like a Rock Star! Many Thanks!
I appreciate so much all the new additions this year. Every time I came across something new, my thoughts were how great this program is and how it can do everything I need!
Total Registration is so impressive. Ordering was simplified, and I am certain our behind-the-scenes test process will be just as smooth. THANK YOU...in advance!
Total Registration has made our AP process much smoother, more accurate, and less stressful for the students and our office. The seating chart option this year was truly a life-saver for us! THANK YOU for creating this amazing product and for all the support you continue to give AP Coordinators!
I really enjoyed working with TR people again this year. This is a great program and has saved me countless hours and levels of frustration. Thank you.
Thank you for your services. I have only positive experiences with Total Registration and your attention to customer service.
This is my second year as the AP Coordinator. We are also using Total Registration this year. It has been a HUGE time savings for me in the coordination process. Our school secretaries appreciated the time savings too as they would usually collect the payments. It also simplified things for parents/students to register and pay online. Through Total Registration I was also able to send an email reminder to the students about the pre-administration sessions.
I would completely recommend Total Registration!
I have administered AP exams for 26 years. Total Registration is a life saver as the job of counselor has had more added to the plate. This is quick and easy for families as well as the AP Coordinator and school staff. I love and use the reports with ease. Obvious by how long I've done AP, I am not a real tech person and even I find it easy to use.
I love Total Registration!! It makes a very stressful time of the year bearable. I would fight long and hard if my administration tried to make me cut it from the budget.
I have used this service for several years and it continues to get better and better. This service allows for accurate ordering and is extremely easy to use. Keep up the good work!!
Thank you for all your help during all aspects of the Total Registration process. The one thing that really stands out about your company, are all the quick responses to my questions via email. I thought for sure trying to send an email to receive an answer and direction when you're in the middle of any one project, would take forever. This was not the case, all responses were immediate - with little to no down time.
Keep up the good work. For a Title 1 school like mine, the F/R reports are invaluable when it's time to actually order and then create invoices through the AP registration site. Our plan is to use TR for PSAT next year and try out the credit card payment to see how it really goes over with our parents. Thanks again for a product that really made my life easier during the craziness of second semester and all the testing I'm in charge of.
I love Total Registration. While I am no more accurate with my ordering, it is easier to get it accurate!! I spend WAY less time on ordering, payments, etc. Set it and forget it! I like that I have to approve Fee Waivers, and the reports are great. Thank you...I will be trying the text feature next year.
I absolutely LOVE Total Registration and will continue to use it. It saved me time, I got to spend more time with my family after work, and the accuracy was impeccable!!! Thank you Mike and the Total Registration staff!
TR made my first year as our school's AP coordinator very easy and gave me the confidence to know I was getting done everything I needed. I have nothing but gratitude for this service.
Every day we said, "Thank You Total Registration!"
Wonderful product!! While our orders were as accurrate pre-Total Registration, the STRESS is gone! I don't have to double and triple check anything!
This year we elected to use an on-line registration site (totalregistration.net). This is a GREAT site. The kids pre-select as part of registration which pre-admin they want to sign up for. The kids register online and all the exam totals, student info, alternate exams, waivers, accommodations are all compiled via this program. You have to pay for the site but this has been a huge success and a relief for tracking all the information. The site was linked to our homepage.
All coordinators need to do is an initial set-up and the rest is done....Very smooth, Very Easy .....The data collection is automatic When you need to order exams, you can print rosters from the site and or just exam totals.
Mike was EXTREMELY helpful and called me even after hours. There are not many businesses that will do that! I appreciated his professionalism and willingness to explain every detail and answer all of my questions thoroughly. He was very patient with my many questions (and, yes, I should have re-visited the videos more often instead of calling or emailing for help :)) I have and will continue to recommend Total Registration to my colleagues and hope to use more of the options next year. I was in charge of a few too many things this spring. I plan to get a few of those "things" off of my plate next year, so that I have time to explore the other options. Total Registration's reports were appreciated by our teachers, but some of them needed a little help setting up their account. Thank you for developing such a unique, time-saving program that meets the needs of AP Coordinators!
I have to say that Doherty High School in the Springs is THRILLED with the service that you guys offer. Our AP exam registration has been a breeze this year and we love all of the reports that are available.
Thank you for the amazing service! I could not have imagined coordinating AP exams without all the features of Total Registration.
TR made it very smooth and I think all the staff and students appreciated the less stressful experience than what was done previously.
I would just like to say again how wonderful your program is and you have helped us to save so much time and extra work! We love it!
The site and the reports are great and saves me a lot of time such as the student lists, free and reduced lunch lists, the tally reports, etc. It has been a lifesaver for me especially dealing with four small schools. Thanks for making the site user-friendly.
This site was very helpful! Our state has added new assessments and it helps that I am able to help the other counselors with those and am not spending all of my time on paperwork for AP exams.
Thank you, love the site and service. YOU are such a big help!!!
Very helpful service. Saved me a lot of time!
Using Total Registration has been a great addition for us this year! Just yesterday, we were able to complete a task that took about 4 hours last year in only about 2 hours! It has been wonderful having all of the numbers, data, payment info, etc. at our fingertips!
This was my happiest AP year by far!!!! Thank you.
Thanks for making my life a little easier. I am so thankful for TR's database and service.
Thank YOU for all the support you have given me during the entire process. I was extremely impressed by the speed during which you have always answered our queries to ensure that the registration process has gone so smoothly. It was very nice working with you on this and we extend our thanks to you and all your team.
There are a lot of new reports added from when we first started with you guys. I love all of the additions. Each year, you make my job easier and testing more efficient. Especially since our testing numbers go up every year. We are expecting to give over 1600 this year. Yikes! But no worries with TR in our court.
Total Registration is the easiest most efficient program/software/vendor that I have every worked with. Thank you for the convenience of Total Registration.
Thank you so much - Total Registration saved me hours of work and kept me totally organized. Your site made the whole AP administration so much easier for students, parents, teachers, and the coordinator (me)! We are huge fans and will continue using TR for years to come!
Perfect! You remain to be AWESOME!!! Thank you for your prompt solutions to our school's requests.
As a first year AP Coordinator, Total Registration saved me so much time and what I know would have been frustration that I will use the service again and again. Every aspect of the program is easy to use! All information needed was just a click away! Next year, I won't worry near as much since I know Total Registration will do most of the work for me.
I have been the administrator overseeing the Advanced Placement testing for many years. However, this past year we lost staffing in our counseling department and I became the AP coordinator at our site. Along with this came the task of organizing and monitoring the actual AP testing from start to finish. Total Registration was a great resource to use during the registration process as well as ordering the exams. The report center was helpful in making testing room assignments. I will be working with Total Registration again next year for our AP testing needs.
The worry over wondering if I'd tallied the exams correctly is gone! Thank you for making the process smoother for me and my students.
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.
I used Total Registration for the first time this year. I am now their biggest fan. They are forward-thinking, responsive and innovative, and going online helped not only my processes, but also got our instructors more involved (they took their classes as a whole to our computer labs to sign the kids up).
My record keeping this year is 100% accurate because of using Total Registration. I wish I had found them earlier!
I definitely recommend this service; on the front end it saved me tons of time organizing and tracking data. Feel free to contact me if you have questions.
I would highly recommend Total Registration. This was the first year (2010) we used it and it saved me hours. Ordering online, being able to print exam lists, free and reduced lists, attendance lists; it was wonderful.
It's my first year with Total Registration this year and I love it. It actually saved my fanny many times because I could access information so quickly.
I really don't know where to begin with my praise for Total Registration! Quite simply, T.R. has totally streamlined and simplified the AP Exam registration process for me, for my AP teachers, and for our students. As I was setting up our account, my endless questions were answered quickly, patiently, and completely. As our exam registration window opened, students found the site extremely easy to navigate, and not one student had any problems registering. For the record, this year we have 325 students taking nearly 650 exams! The elimination of tedious paperwork was a true blessing for all of us. And the ability to generate virtually any type of report that you could ever want or need has made my "AP life" so much more efficient. The cost of this service has already paid for itself several times over!
Total Registration saves an enormous amount of time in this huge task of running AP Exams. TR offers the credit card option to parents who appreciate that choice. The many 'user friendly' reports provided in the TR service help organize the sales process and give instant feedback when needed. Give Total Registration a try... I think you will find it worth the investment.
Total Registration is a must have for AP Registration! The whole AP process was so much more organized with this tool. Total Registration came up with reports I didn't even know I needed but that saved me so much time! Initially when I was looking into Total Registration I was worried about the cost. With so many great features I was expecting it to be out of our budget. I was pleasantly surprised at how affordable it is. It is worth every penny!
This was my first experience with Total Registration, and it was simplified by the fact that we did not use the online payment option. Without question, the Total Registration web-based registration for AP Exams produced the most accurate registration I have ever accomplished (and past registrations were good)! This translates to fewer unused exam fees.
Kudos to Wake County PSS for providing for this service, and of course, to the Total Registration Team for such an easy to use and efficient process. Hopefully, next year's AP registration will include online payment.
So far this has been an amazing program and we are extremely impressed with the quality of the website and the incredible amount of available information.
Thank you so much!!! I can't say enough about your website, and how it's made my life sooo much easier.
Our parents love the clarity and ease of the Total Registration site. The reactions of parents, students, and teachers have been extremely positive about registering online. The ability to pay using credit cards has been a boon for us!
Dee and I would just like to thank you for a wonderful website. We just talked and we both agree that this has made registering for the AP and collecting money so easy. Everything is on the website that we need and you have worked so well with us throughout the past couple of months. We just wish that this would have been done years ago. You are the best.
We just want you to know how happy we are with the on-line registration and your amazingly quick response when we have a question. We can't even explain how much easier this has made our whole process. Also, I want you to know that other MN districts are becoming aware of this program! Because our school will offer any one of the AP exams, students from other districts are registering to take exams at our school. I have been getting calls from AP coordinators in other districts asking a lot of questions. Thank you so much for all of your help and support. We LOVE this process!
Your program has made our AP registration so easy.
Thank you, thank you, thank you! We were thrilled with the perfect and professional level of service we received from Total Registration. Every school should partner with you!
Total Registration is awesome! Mike, you are wonderful and always respond quickly to any questions we have. We always appreciate everything TR does for us!
We love your service and are so happy that we used you this year. We will be continuing to use Total Registration for all AP exam registration in the future and will be using TR for PSAT in the fall. Our school is going to IB in the 2018-2019 school year and total registration is going to make ordering those exams so much smoother.
Please keep doing what you are doing. I could never go back to AP Testing without Total Registration!!
The answer sheet printing feature was great... you guys are so smart!!! I am glad you thought of it!
Overall I really liked the ease and not having to schedule a pre-administrative session. Not to mention having to follow up with kids who didn't show up.
The answer sheet printing feature was excellent, and we plan to use it again. Thank you!
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 really liked it!! I think it saved us a tremendous amount of time. We have had to do General Directions 1 in the past, and it helped tremendously with getting the afternoon sessions started on time.
I thought the process was smooth, time-saving and helped streamline the organization tremendously.
I thought the whole process was outstanding and saved me so much time, not so much in the beginning but rather in between tests and getting one student pack and answer sheet together.
Thank you for doing this. It was great! It was a bit more upfront prep work than I had expected (adhering all of the labels on everything), but it was well worth it in the long run. Test day went perfectly!!
Answer Sheet Printing was a GREAT addition to the services for Total Registration! It saved us so much time on our end and reduced some of the tracking down of students we've had to do in the past to get them into a pre-admin session. The fact that the answer sheets came sorted chronologically by test alphabetically was a godsend for us since we have a LARGE number of students testing each year.
I think that the organization up front with the answer sheets helps save a TON of time at the exam. It benefits the students in that they spend less time bubbling and more focused time on the actual test.
We liked the option of TR completing the pre-admin session. It saved us time and did not make us take the students out of the class so they did not miss any instructional time.
I LOVE getting the pre-administration completed through you. It saved me a tremendous amount of time and energy, and further simplified what is an enormous logistical task in coordinating these exams. THANK YOU!
I surveyed our students and they were very happy with the pre-printed answer sheets and the elimination of "bubble day" (what we used to call pre-adminstration).
Having the student data printeed on the answer sheets made the time leading up to the exams less stressful for both the students and our staff who have had to run multiple dreaded pre-administration sessions in the past!
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.
From what I hear from the past AP Coordinator, pre-registration used to be a giant pain. Thank you so much for providing another option!
You are a lifesaver! I would never be able to do this job without your program!
