Across the country, both private and public institutions of higher education have announced that they will be test-optional for students applying to enter school in the fall of 2021. This policy, instituted as a response to coronavirus cancellations of standardized testing dates, comes with the caveat that it would only exist during next year’s round of admissions.

Instead, students this year will be taking an abridged version of the AP Exams online. The traditional marathon-like tests have become free response exams that will last for just 45 minutes. This change, among many others, has garnered lukewarm reception even before testing began. Will these altered AP Exams carry the same weight as normal tests?

Donned in their cap and gown, students have proudly walked across a stage in front of their peers, educators and families, to receive their diploma or degree in-hand, perhaps followed up by a hug or handshake from their educators, as a sign of congratulations and respect for all of their hard work over the course of many years.
