- When and how does scoring from home take place during the AP® Reading?
Readers in most AP® subjects can score exams online from their home or office during the same timeframe in which other colleagues are scoring exams at a Reading site. To find out when your subject's Reading will take place and if at home scoring is available for your subject, visit the AP Reading Calendar.
Readers scoring from home can work flexible schedules during the seven day Reading period but must attend mandatory training on the first day of the event. During the invitation process, Readers are asked to indicate the number of hours they plan on working each day during the Reading.
- What do I need in order to score from home?
Readers must own a PC (not Chromebook™ or tablet) or Mac® computer with a reliable internet connection to score using the online system, and must have access to a phone that can make and receive calls while you are connected to the internet. A printer is also recommended. At home scoring requires an internet speed of at least 2 Mbps for non-video scoring and at least 5 Mbps for responses that contain videos.
- Can I score outside of the United States?
- No, scoring outside of the United States is not permitted. All Readers participating in at home scoring programs must perform their work within the continental United States, Hawaii, Alaska or Puerto Rico. Readers must have authorization to work for remuneration in the United States.
- When and how does training occur?
System and content training occurs at the beginning of the first day of the Reading. Depending on the subject, initial training will take up to a full day and may be either self-paced or conducted via teleconference or webinar by a Scoring Leader. All Reader training is conducted using online documents and sample student responses.
