The sessions allow students to take the AP practice exam in an appropriate and timed atmosphere. Students will start the exam with the free-response questions, followed by the multiple-choice section. This is done to allow time for the instructors to grade the free-response questions while the multiple-choice section is being administered. Teachers will be given their students graded test material along with an item analysis of the multiple-choice section of their class.
Over the past ten years, the collaborative has helped thousands of students in their preparation for the AP Calculus, AP Statistics, AP Biology and AP Chemistry exams. The AP Practice exam is designed to give both students and teachers valuable information as they prepare for the exam.
Over a 5-hour period on a Saturday, one month prior to the actual exam, students will take the practice exam. Within two hours after their students complete the exam, teachers leave with a class item analysis, all of their students’ open response questions graded and a score for each student’s exam.
Participating teachers have informed us that their students have been able to add one point to the practice AP exam. They commented that the data collected at the AP Exam allowed them to focus on student weaknesses.
