We have set up a Demonstration High School and District for you see first hand how Total Registration works.
There are two parts to the demonstration site:
Please visit the Demo High School registration site at www.TotalRegistration.net/IB/000011 and try the registration form. This form can be fully customized to your school's colors and needs. If you enter a valid email while registering, you will be emailed a Registration Confirmation just as the students would.
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!
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!
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!
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.
