The College Board now requires students be seated randomly (not alphabetically) during AP exams. The Seating Chart tool allows schools to Auto Assign Students to seats or drag-and-drop students to specific seats.
To create your seating chart, go to Report Center => Room Assignments/Seating Charts => Assign Students to Room, Create Seating Charts. NOTE: You must first assign students to rooms before you can create a seating chart.
Click the exam you want to create a seating chart for. The Assign Students to Room screen shows you rooms you have assigned to that exam, the minimum/maximum capacity for that room, and a list of each student registered for that exam plus any accommodations he/she has. You can also specify the number of rows and columns of seats for your seating chart on this screen. Be sure to click Save Row & Column when you update those fields.
Click the Seating Chart link for the room you want to create the seating chart for. On the Seating Chart screen, you can Auto Assign Students to seats or drag-and-drop students to specific seats. You can also click the Un Assign Seats button if you wish to start over with seat assignments.
