Final Exams

Your GaVS final exam will open on December 3, 2014 at 12:00 a.m. and close promptly at 11:59 p.m. on December 4, 2014. You must take your final exam within this time frame and in ONE sitting.
  • Once the exam opens it must be completed in the time allotted for your course. *Check your specific course for details.
  • There are NO extensions. There are NO exemptions.
  • Be sure that you complete your exams using a trusty computer with a trusty connection – NO EXCUSES!!! Final exams will not be reset.
  • You need to make sure you have the latest Java version and latest browser version, preferably Chrome or Firefox.
  • Prepare now so you do not run into issues.

How do I review for my Psychology A final exam?

Your final exam is the same format as your unit m/c exams. There is no FRQ on your AP Psychology A final.
  • Shmoop, Shmoop, Shmoop!!! If you have not already enrolled in Shmoop, now is the time to do so (see graphic below if you don't know how). You can take a diagnostic test in Shmoop to see where you really need to focus in your studies. Again, this is also a great tool to review for the AP exam in May.
  • Review all missed items from your unit m/c exams and FRQs. (See image below if you don't know how to do this.)
  • Check out the resources in the LINKS section of your course and in course news items.
  • Review your e text resources such as vocabulary in the margins, graphics, and chapter summaries.
  • Review course content and learning objects for practice.
