So, there's been a lot of confusion surrounding these AP Exam HITs, and they're quite good money makers if you get familiar with them.
So let's get acclimated!
AP Exams, or Advanced Placement exams are tests given to high school students that allow them to get college credit. The scores are 1, 2, 3, 4, or 5. 3 is considered "passing" but the acceptance of AP exams is up to individual policy of the school.
That's where these HITs come in.
The HITs want you to test those links. If those links come to a chart of Advanced Placement/AP Exam Credit, you're golden to continue. If not, you submit everything with a no on the top half.

Let's go with the "good link" scenario. Good link means you found either a chart, list, or grid that lists the type of exam and the given credit for a score on the exam.
Now, locate the exam you're looking for. If you can't find that exam, you're already done. Press no at the top, submit, and move on.
If you do find the exam name, you have more work to do. When you find the place in the chart, make sure to be familiar with how the chart reads for the school.
If there are no "minimum scores" listed in the chart, there's likely a text at the top specifying a minimum score. If you cannot find ANY score information despite finding the exam, submit "Unclear".
Otherwise, you'll see that they require either a minimum of 3, 4, or 5, usually 3 or 4 is the minimum score. Usually, they offer the same credit based on a minimum score. If the score minimum is 4, that means your 3 column is all nos. Same with minimum 5, that means 3 and 4 are "No".
Sometimes, schools award credit differently depending on the score. This is rare, but clearly listed.

If a specific course code is listed for credit, the answer for placement is "yes". If it's a general elective credit, the answer is either unclear or no, depending, and you check a box in the bottom half that says elective credit.

That's pretty much what there is to these HITs. Once you get a rhythm, you'll be doing pretty good here.
I'll give some examples in a bit, but please, hit me with specific questions on anything I glossed over too quickly or you need more explanation on.

Well, this is asking if the school has special requirements. Some schools might say you have to have taken and received a 3 or better on Ap Physics Mechanics to get credit for having passed AP Physics C Electricity and Magnetism.
The bottom half is for special cases only, so if they just give credit normally, you don't even need those questions.

Do we need to leave a comment if it is "NO"? There seems to be contradictory instructions:

"If No, scroll down to the bottom, enter your comment and submit form."
"If NO - Go to STEP 2, SELECT NO and SUBMIT"

What are we doing where there's no # of credit points given/listed for scores? In other words, has the minimum requirements listed and the course equivalent but doesn't say how many credits are given?

i haven't seen one yet, but i'm guessing it might be something like, the HIT is asking for Calculus AB, but the course at the university needs you toscore well in AB and BC to get that credit

Well, those are different "no's" They want comments for what you can find out about the exam credit. If your link is broken, your link is broken. There's not much to it other than no.

Leave the credits field blank, and enter a quick comment. State that the course listed is given, but the amount of credits it's worth isn't, or something similar.

Thanks for making the thread!

What would I put down for something like this?


Eng Language & Comp 3,4,5, 3 (hours) ENG 101
Eng Literature & Comp 3,4,5, 6 (hours) ENG 101, ENG 250

Should I just submit as the 3 and then make a note of the 6?

Quick question:

For the course codes/code equivalents, are we putting the course code (such as MATH120, 130), or the Placement for score requirements? (such as 3 or more)

I mean as long as you filled out the information they don't give a fuck.
But try to be careful in the future, I guess. Did that a lot my first time on these too.

You're putting in the course code for the score of that column. So they want MATH 120, 130, not the placement score, because that's defined in the column you're in.
