Setting up Periods

Some schools wish to organize their exam rosters and/or reports by class teacher and period. To add periods for students to choose from during their registration, you first must create the periods. Click Manage/Set Up Periods in the Set Up section of your Configuration menu and then click Add Periods. The Add New Period window opens.

Add a period, such as Period 1, and either click Add More Periods or click Finish-Save Periods if you have no more periods to add.

NOTE: You can create periods for second-semester classes that can be exempt from adding a late fee. Some schools will do this so students can register for Spring semester classes after they have actually started that class and decided they do want to take the AP exam. You will need to create a separate Period and click the "Exempt from the late fee" box, as seen below.

You will then need to link the periods to the individual exams by clicking Manage/Set Up Exams on your Configuration menu screen and then click Manage Exams and either edit an existing exam or create a new exam. At the bottom of the Edit Exam window, you can link periods to the teachers, as seen in the below example. You can click inside the "Periods" box for a teacher to add additional periods.  To remove a periods, just click the "x" next to the period.

NOTE: Periods and Section IDs are different in TR and serve different purposes. Section IDs are only used on the answer sheet when TR prints the primary answer sheet. The system allows you to set one section ID for a teacher (not one for each period). These are used by the College Board to aggregate scores by section ID so that each teacher can access the scores of just their students and not all the other teachers' students. When there is only one teacher for an exam, there is not much need to use a section ID.

 

When your students register, they will see periods linked to teachers' names for each exam, as seen in the below example.
