For the Non-American's out there, CollegeBoard is an organization that is responsible among other things for administering AP Exams to high schoolers. While the AP Exams have been done the same way for many years, the COVID-19 pandemic forced CollegeBoard to not be able to do it. CollegeBoard created an online poll asking students if they still wanted to take an AP Exam, to which 91% of the students voted that they would. Flash forward to mid-May 2020 and the AP Exams were being taken by millions of students. Many students had posted online about how they had finished the test with 5 or 6 minutes left to go, but the exam would not load in time for the students to submit. Keep in mind the students paid money out of their own pockets and took a course much harder than the normal class just for this exam. It was later revealed that CollegeBoard's online testing program had went out virtually untested. As well, some students did not have a great place to take the exams, like having to take care of younger siblings or bad/no internet. The poll that CollegeBoard sent out was only voted on by people who could vote online. Had it been through something like mail or through the high schools themselves, the numbers would probably be much different than 91%. Due to this, students are now suing CollegeBoard $500,000,000 US, as this is not just any test. This is a test that they wasted all their hard work for for a year and could heavily impact them in the future, and CollegeBoard handled it poorly. As of now, CollegeBoard is attempting to blame the students for either "outdated browser" (Most of the students used Microsoft Edge, Safari, Mozilla Firefox, or Google Chrome, 4 browsers that are anything but outdated.) or because the students voted overwhelmingly for taking it (Not every student had the ability to vote in that poll). CollegeBoard is denying all claims.

Discuss.

I still don't get the point of the signature.
