Update on Materials for Make Up Exams

Michigan Schools received emails with custom links last week to order materials for make-up exams for SAT. Schools were directed to store materials for PSAT 10 and PSAT 8/9 for the make-up window. Schools could also order additional materials for accommodated forms. With your help, the College Board also distributed generic links for orders.

This week, materials that were ordered through these channels should arrive in schools by Friday of this week. If schools do not receive the materials they ordered, they should call TAS: 800-257-5123

Even scholarly detractors consider AP to be one of the most significant brand names in American education (Sadler & Tai, 2006). But to what extent does AP offer unique benefits that contribute to student success in college? This has been a matter of discussion among researchers for several years.
