UPDATE: See detailed instructions in this post below my first signature! I'm trying to set up an account on the College Board to submit an AP syllabus. I'm running into a road block - the FAQ here says: Unfortunately, there is no selection called "Home School Provider" available to choose from the list. Instead, it requires that I choose a function (teacher) and an organization (a school in a premade list). You can see the problem by going to the AP Course Audit page for AP Computer Science A and clicking the Get Started Create and Account link on that page. (You don't need to create an account or even type in any information to see the list.) At the bottom of the Create Your Professional Account page that appears, scroll to the bottom of the page and look at the list provided by the label "What is your primary job function?" Note that "Home School Provider" is not there. In addition, it requires you to select an employer from "Where do you work?" Has anyone who homeschools recently successfully submitted a syllabus to the College Board? If so, how did you do it? I plan to call the CB tomorrow, but just thought I'd ask now. Thanks! GardenMom UPDATE: Here are detailed instructions on how to gain access to submit a syllabus to AP Course Audit: 1. Go to the AP Course Audit page for AP Computer Science A and just click on the Get Started Create an Account link on that page. (Of course, you can do this from the AP Course Audit page for any AP test.) This will take you to the Create Your Professional Account page. 2. Fill in your "Account Information" as normal. 3. For the "Professional Information", do NOT enter "Zip or postal code of your organization." Leave that space blank. 4. For "Where do you work," enter your state CEEB code (99XX99 where the "XX" depends on your state). For VA, it is 994799. You must type the number (do not press enter) and then wait for "Statename Home School" to appear below that box in light blue. Then click on the light blue text to enter the proper homeschool information for your state into the form. (You can also accomplish the same result by typing "Statename Home School" directly into the form, waiting, and then selecting the proper result from the list. Note that the CB spells out "Home School" as two words, so you must also use this format. Thanks, Sebastian!) 5. Do NOT check the box "My organization is not listed." 6. For the "What is your primary job function?" selection, choose "K-12: AP Teacher." 7. Click "Next: Review." 8. Review your entries and accept that form. (I don't remember what the button is called on that page.) 9. Go to your email and find one from the College Board entitled "Education Professional Registration Confirmation." Open the email and click the link to sign in again and thereby validate your account. 10. Return to the AP Course Audit page for AP Computer Science A page and this time click on the Continue to AP Course Audit link. (It is located in the same green area at the top left of the page where you originally found the link to "Get Started Create an Account." 11. This will open the AP Course Audit page. You will see an error message which reads: Do not panic! This is normal. The person at College Board explained that this message appears because you have not yet set up the course audit area (with basically the same information you just provided a minute ago). 12. Click Click here. :laugh: A new page entitled Get Access to AP Course Audit will appear. 13. Ensure that "Teacher" is selected for "Job Function." 14. Do NOT enter "Zip/Postal Code." Leave that space blank. 15. For "Professional Organization" enter your state CEEB code (99XX99 where the "XX" depends on your state). For VA, it is 994799. You must type the number (do not press enter) and then wait for "Statename Home School" to appear below that box in light blue. (Again!) (You can also accomplish the same result by typing "Statename Home School" directly into the form, waiting, and then selecting the proper result from the list. Note that the CB spells out "Home School" as two words, so you must also use this format. Thanks, Sebastian!) 16. Click the "Add" button. You will see a message which reads: You can now see your access on the lower right portion of the screen: Woohoo!! I'm all set through January, 2040!! :hurray: 17. Click the "Finished" button to see a page for 10 seconds which reads: That sounds so official!! 18. After waiting for the prescribed 10 seconds, your My College Board Professional Account page will appear. (Without my husband's encouragement, I could not possibly ever wait for that long! :blush:) 19. Click the AP Course Audit hypertext in the "My Tools and Services" area. This again takes you to the AP Course Audit page, but this time without the error! 20. Click the "Add New Course" button. A pop-up window entitled "New Course for Virginia Home School" appears. Select the course for which you want to submit a syllabus and click "Add Course" and then confirm on the next page. The right side of the screen now shows: 21. Click the "Submit syllabus" button to submit your syllabus. (I am not providing that link since it is either for "Computer Science A" or for my specific account or perhaps both.) That's it! Wasn't that easy? Hopefully someone else will be helped by these steps (until they change the website next month :glare: ). Please let me know if you have any questions or problems with these instructions. A BIG thanks to my hubby, RegGuheert, for constructing this post for me!!! GardenMom
I am likely to sign up for the Great Courses Plus to stream via my Roku and on anything else when necessary. My only concern is not having a syllabus, as you get with an Audible Course purchase and a hard copy version. For those who use this Plus service, how do you handle NOT having a syllabus? I know some can be found online, but for those that can't, what do you do? Thanks
