AP exams scrapped at two Louisville high schools to 'ensure exam integrity'

Posted: Updated:

LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) – The principal of duPont Manual High School postponed part of a college-credit exam on Friday, telling parents that the move was made “to protect the interests of our students.”

The test administrator also canceled an exam at Assumption High School to "ensure exam integrity," Tom Ewing, spokesman for Educational Testing Service, said in an email. He declined to comment further.

Assumption Principal Martha Tedesco said by email that there were "no concerns raised regarding AP testing" at her school, which plans to reschedule part of the test.

Manual Principal Jerry Mayes wrote in a letter to parents that he learned Friday morning from a testing vendor “of an issue that had the potential to impact” part of an advanced placement exam on geography. Mayes declined to elaborate when reached at his office Friday afternoon.

He referred questions to Jennifer Brislin, spokeswoman for Jefferson County Public Schools. She said she could not provide any details besides those in Mayes’ letter.

Brislin said she was not aware of any similar situation in the past. She also said the College Board, the New York-based organization that oversees the SAT and advanced placement tests, was “involved” in the matter.

In all 349 freshmen were affected, according to JCPS. Mayes wrote in his letter that the school is working to reschedule the exam, “which will likely happen later this month.”
