This was today’s see-if-the-clickers-are-working question. No one picked “salad” in either class. NO ONE.
When I brought this up in 8th,1 one kid responded,
This is America. We’re all about FREEDOM.
I spent a couple of hours this evening taking the 2013 Stat AP Exam International/Alternate that was released to teachers today.2
39/40 on the MC, 3-4-2-3-4-3 on the FR. 88/100 overall. Actually thought the domestic “Form O” free response was more difficult in some ways, that the Int’l was more moderate overall in difficulty.
I think two things:
- College Board is trying to make the test harder to “teach to” – this is, IMO, a good thing.
- We need new textbooks for AP Stat. Things have changed a lot in the past 4 years… and they’ve changed A LOT in the past 9 — which is when our current texts were published.
