The Thirteenth Annual Advanced Placement Calculus (AB and BC) Practice Exam

Saturday, April 25, 2020

Please DO NOT USE the Calculus 2019 Practice/Alternate Exam (AB and BC) for both the Multiple Choice and Free Response sections to prepare for this practice exam since they will be used as the exam in these sessions.

The practice exam will be given in the morning and, after a short lunch, we will review the solutions and grading standards of the Free Response section in the afternoon. Since we will grade the Multiple Choice portion of the exam while the students are working on the Free Response problems, every student will know their score (1-5) on the exam when the afternoon session is completed (we will collect all exam materials as stated by ETS). Once the practice exam has begun, attending teachers will meet to share ideas and refreshments.

Students from CRR PARTNER schools (see below) pay a participation fee of $5 each.

Students from NON-PARTNER schools pay a participation fee of $25 each.

Registrants will be notified of the room location the week before the exam.

 

Teacher estimates for the AP CALCULUS Practice Exam are due by WEDNESDAY, APRIL 8, 2020.


The Seventh Annual Advanced Placement Statistics Practice Exam

Saturday, April 25, 2020

For the first time, we will be using a practice exam designed at Clemson University. This will minimize the risk of teachers assigning questions before the practice exam, and will also allow students to take the exams with them at the end of the day.  If you have access to this practice exam, please DO NOT USE questions from this exam in your review sessions.

Also for the first time, the Statistics practice exam will follow a similar schedule to Calculus. The practice exam will be given in the morning and, after a short lunch, we will review the solutions and grading standards of the Free Response section in the afternoon. Since we will grade the Multiple Choice portion of the exam while the students are working on the Free Response problems, every student will know their score (1-5) on the exam when the afternoon session is completed (we will collect all exam materials as stated by ETS). Once the practice exam has begun, attending teachers will meet to share ideas and refreshments

Students from CRR PARTNER schools (see below) pay a participation fee of $5 each.

Students from NON-PARTNER schools pay a participation fee of $25 each.

Registrants will be notified of the room location the week before the exam.

 

Teacher estimates for the AP STATISTICS Practice Exam are due by WEDNESDAY, APRIL 8, 2020.
