Set Up Test Day Toolkit for AP Exams

Complete the steps below for each test administration. Start when you get an email telling you that your roster is available in Test Day Toolkit. 


  1. Sign in to Test Day Toolkit with your College Board account.

    • Returning users can go to
    • If it’s your first time using Test Day Toolkit, click the link in the access email we send you and follow the onscreen instructions.
  2. Add staff to the administration so they can use Test Day Toolkit on test day.

    • Important: Do this as soon as possible so there’s time to resolve any staff access issues before test day. 
    • Navigate to the Staff page.
    • Add contact details for your proctors and other test day staff.
    • Timesaver: If you’ve used the toolkit before, select returning staff from your staff list.
    • We’ll send access emails to new staff and use the contact details you provide for 2-step verification so make sure their email and phone number are current.
    • As part of 2-step verification, we send staff a code that expires after 3 minutes. Mobile numbers make first-time access easier.
  3. Add rooms.

    • Navigate to All Rooms.
    • Give each room a name and a seating capacity.
  4. Optional: Assign students to rooms.

    • Navigate to the All Students page.
    • Use the checkboxes next to student names and the action drop-down menu to move groups of students to the same room.
    • If some students are approved for accommodations, open the AP SSD Guidelines to find out if they need to test in separate rooms.
    • If any students are testing over multiple days, refer to the AP Coordinator Exam Day Guide for special instructions on setting up rooms in Test Day Toolkit. 
  5. Assign staff to roles and rooms.

    • Assign 1 proctor to each room.
    • Only 1 proctor can be assigned to a room, but anyone with access can use Test Day Toolkit to complete proctor activities in any room. 
    • Assign 1 or more technology monitors by selecting Technology coordinator
    • Don’t assign technology monitors to a room.
