Thursday September 28, during first period students were instructed to get out their chromebooks and open up the application Bluebook, but what exactly is Bluebook?

Founded in 1900 College Board was a company created in an attempt to expand access to higher education mainly for high school students. They have continued their dedication to promoting excellence and equity in education; and is made up of over 6,000 of the world’s leading educational institutions. 

Previous to this year, all PSAT’s, SAT’s, and AP exams were given on paper and housed in thin paper packets. Students would use #2 pencils, and have to fill out a scantron to solidify their answers. As the digital age continues to advance and become integrated into our everyday lives, and activities it is no surprise that College Board has developed a new application to keep up with the game. 

Bluebook is a testing application that is owned and created by College Board. For this testing year, schools and students will have the option to take a paper or digital version. However, some schools may opt in for all students while others will give students a choice. 

Only certain AP exams will be available to take the digital version of

  • Computer Science Principles 
  • English Language and Composition
  • English Literature and Composition
  • European History 
  • Seminar
  • U.S. History 
  • World History: Modern 

Bluebook will be attempted to be used for students this round of PSAT testing on October 11, 2023.

How would you prefer to take the SAT/PSAT/AP exams?
