This event consists of two parts:

  1. Students taking a full practice AP Exam (AP Calculus AB, AP Calculus BC, or AP Statistics)
  2. An afternoon Scoring Session to review the solutions and grading standards (separate session for each exam)

At the end of the day, every student will know their score (1-5) on the practice exam they took. 

IN-PERSON (8:30am-2:30pm):

For those participating in-person, the practice exams will be given in the morning and we will review the solutions and grading standards in the afternoon.

Scoring Session


ONLINE (Scoring Session by Zoom, 12:30-2:30pm): 

For those participating online in the Scoring Session (12:30-2:30pm), it is essential that all students take the full practice exam IN ADVANCE. Facilitators will take a few minutes to provide the correct answers to the Multiple Choice problems, but the bulk of the Scoring Session will be dedicated to the Free Response section.

By hosting the Scoring Session in the afternoon, teachers and schools have the flexibility to coordinate students taking the practice exam however works best for their specific situation. For example, schools may have students sit for an in-person exam the morning of the event, and then host a viewing of the Scoring Session by Zoom in the afternoon. Or students may take the practice exam in multiple class sessions leading up to the event. Again, it is up to teachers and schools to coordinate this for their students BEFORE the Scoring Session.

Regardless of when the practice exam is administered, attending the online Scoring Session should be a group event with the teacher, NOT individual students joining from home. Teachers can choose the best way to coordinate this, but the Zoom links will NOT be provided directly to students.

Zoom links will only be provided to teachers who register for the event (details provided the week of the event). In order to keep to our schedule and to address tech issues, participants should login to the Zoom session no later than 12:15pm.
