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.
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!
I greatly appreciated the support staff at TR for putting up with all my questions and emails!! You all totally rock! Thank you all for your kind and prompt response to my endless questions. Because of the great support we received, this whole process has gone so smoothly, and I constantly tell our "powers that be" that the cost involved is totally worth it!
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!
For us...this is the first year we've used TOTAL REGISTRATION (a choice I made as our new AP coordinator). I can say that it is an amazing program and has saved me an incredible amount of time in planning for our upcoming exams. It has streamlined our registration and payment processing for AP that is light years ahead of what used to be done at BHSN. While there has been a "learning curve" for us as with all new technology...I have really loved the many positive aspects of this program. It has easily organized my rosters for each exam, F/R lunch students, students with an IEP, communication with AP teachers, aligning dates/times/locations of exams, kept me up to date on unpaid exams, and SO much more. I have loved using this program and believe it will be even easier as we use it in the future.
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.
