For schools with multiple class sections or teachers for a particular AP subject: AP Instructional Planning Reports and subject score rosters are available at the class section or teacher level only if your school designates section numbers on students' answer sheets during the exam administration. For more information, visit Designating Class Sections.
Online and distance learning providers have access to two reports: the AP Instructional Planning Report and subject score roster.
AP Instructional Planning Report
The AP Instructional Planning Report compares students' performance in the multiple-choice and free-response sections and on specific topics in each AP Exam to the performance of all students, helping teachers target areas for increased attention and focus in the curriculum. This report is available for multiple exam years, starting with 2010.

Current year score summary

This report is available for the most recent exam year and displays the last five years of data (e.g., the 2015 report displays data from 2011 to 2015).

Additional Score Reporting Services
Individual schools may order their students' scores on pressure-sensitive labels that attach easily to student records. Each label contains the student's name, social security number or birth date, the AP Exams taken, the years in which the exams were taken, and the scores received. Schools can order these beginning in the spring on the AP Exam Ordering website. The fee is $100 per set, and the deadline to order is June 1, 2016. The labels are sent in mid-July.
Schools are responsible for maintaining student privacy and the confidentiality of AP scores. Only students have the right to forward their AP scores to colleges and universities. Therefore, schools should use caution in affixing AP score labels to transcripts or other records that will be sent to these institutions. Affixing score labels to transcripts can result in a violation of students' rights and opens the door to a potential lawsuit. To avoid this possibility, the AP Program strongly suggests that schools institute one of the following procedures:
- Affix the score label to the back of the transcript and copy only the front of the transcript when sending it to colleges.
- Have students sign a release permitting the school to put the score label on the front of the transcript. Keep the signed releases with students' files.
Schools may request their students' free-response booklets (paper format). Schools that plan to make this request should note that their order includes the entire school's booklets minus those requested by students; schools cannot limit their order to booklets of certain students or certain exams. No comments, corrections, or scores are included. The fee is based on the number of booklets received by the school:
- 1-20: $60
- 21-50: $120
- 51-100: $180
- More than 100: $300
Schools can order booklets on the AP Exam Ordering website, and the deadline for ordering is Sept. 15. The booklets are sent to schools beginning in mid-October; schools should receive the booklets by no later than mid-December.
Free-response booklets are not available for exams whose free-response questions are not released on the College Board website 48 hours after the exam administration (e.g., late-testing exams).
