Exam Day Details for CFHS AP Psych Students

This Monday, you'll be taking the AP Psych Exam. I know you're ready to rock that test, so here's what Chippewa Falls AP Psych students need to know:
  • The exam begins at 12:00 at the old Notre Dame Middle School. (See Map below) Arrive a few minutes early, if possible, to locate your testing room, as there will be more than one testing room for this exam. 
  • You will be automatically excused from 4th - 7th hours (release @ 11:10 AM) for testing. If you wish to use the morning hours to prepare at home, your parents will need to call you in to excuse you from hours 1-3.
  • Since there will be little time between the end of your 3rd hour class and the exam start, consider packing a LIGHT lunch to eat on the way/before the exam begins. However, you can't bring food into the exam rooms. You may pack a snack in your backpack to eat during the break, though. 
  • NOTE: If you are also taking the AP Chem exam in the morning you will DEFINITELY want to pack a lunch to eat quickly between exams. You will NOT have time to leave the test site to get food.
  • You need to provide your own transportation to the test site. Arrange carpools ahead of time, if necessary. Don't wait until the last minute!
  • Be sure to practice a solid pre-test regimen: get plenty of sleep the night before, eat healthful meals, and of course, review your course materials!
  • In case you lost them, these directions were provided by Ms. Ebner during pre-registration.
  1. A couple of #2 pencils (for the MC part). Maybe your lucky pencil?
  2. A couple of pens (blue or black) for the FRQs. Be sure to have a couple in case one runs out of ink!
  3. A photo id (government issued or school id)
  4. I recommend bringing a NICE eraser. You don't want to smear up your scantron form with a crappy, dry, ineffective one if you wish to change answers.
  5. A watch (that does not beep!), in case you are seated in a place where the clock is not easy to see. NO smartwatches, or any type of watch that can communicate externally.
  6. A sweatshirt? It's ideal to dress in layers so you can adjust if you're too hot/cold.
  1. Cellular phones, beepers, MP3 players, or personal data assistants (PDAs)
  2. Books, correction fluid, dictionaries, highlighters, or notes
  3. Scratch paper (notes can be made on portions of the exam booklets)
  4. Calculators
  5. Watches that beep or have an alarm
  6. Portable listening or recording devices (even with headphones) or photographic equipment
  7. Clothing with psych-related information on it (e.g. sorry, even Psych Club shirts are a no-no)
  8. Food or drinks

The former Notre Dame Middle School is located at 3 South High Street, Chippewa Falls, WI. (See map below). Enter through the doors that say "Goldsmith Coffee Bar" and go up a half flight of stairs. Look for signs to direct you to your testing room. You will need to bring a picture ID.

Good luck, everyone! You can do it!
