By Kenneth Bernstein You are a college professor. I have just retired as a high school teacher. I have some bad news for you.
Many colleges and universities grant credit and placement for scores of 3, 4 or 5; however, each college decides which scores it will accept. The Calculus AB subscore is designed to give colleges and universities more information about your abilities.
Use of the subscore in this manner is consistent with the philosophy of the courses, since common topics are tested at the same conceptual level in both Calculus AB and Calculus BC. The aural component subscore includes multiple-choice questions related to recorded musical examples, two melodic dictation questions, two harmonic dictation questions and two sight-singing questions.
The nonaural component subscore includes multiple-choice questions requiring score analysis and other multiple-choice questions not related to recorded musical examples. It also includes free-response questions calling for realization of a figured bass, realization of a chord progression from Roman numerals and composition of a bass line to fit a given melody.
The subscores help music departments make appropriate decisions about credit and placement when they offer separate courses for written theory and aural skills.
It is further recommended that the college or university use the overall score to set policy for students seeking general humanities credits. The work during the school year consists of two "through-course" tasks: The individual project is developed based on several source documents made available to students in January, and consists of a Written Argument, a Multimedia Presentation, and an Oral Defense.
The end-of-course exam has two parts: The end-of-course exam does not have a multiple-choice section. The team project contributes 20 percent of the score; the individual project contributes 35 percent of the score; and the end-of-course exam contributes 45 percent of the score.
In AP Research, students are assessed on an academic paper, a presentation, and an oral defense of their research. The academic paper is evaluated based on the content, structure, format, and conclusions of the paper as well as your ability to properly and accurately cite sources.
The paper contributes 75 percent of the AP Research score, while the presentation and oral defense contribute 25 percent. The multiple-choice section is scored by computer. Each answer sheet is scanned and the total number of correct responses equals the multiple-choice score. The free-response section essays and open-ended questions and through-course performance tasks are scored at the annual AP Reading held during the first two weeks in June.
Specially appointed college professors and experienced AP teachers score this section of the exam. These composite scores are then translated into the 5-point scale using statistical processes designed to ensure that, for example, a 3 this year reflects the same level of achievement as a 3 last year.Home page for AP students, prospective students and their families.
