A.P. test format 1.0 : Ancient Middle East -Just after Thanksgiving we both gave tests using the AP format. We worked together on developing the design of the test. The test had 40-50 multiple choice questions. In addition, we both had short essay questions that required students to analyze documnets they had never seen before. While this is like an A.P. DBQ, we are calling it "A.P. Light" because we were asking for minimal analysis. For instance: 1. "Summarize facts from this article about an early civilization in India that are unique or different when compared to the civilizations we have studied in the Ancient Middle East." 2. Which civilization is this primary document most likely referring to? 3. Which civilization most likely created this artwork?

A.P Test format 2.0: Ancient Greece- Just before February vacation we gave the students another test using the A.P. Format. Here are the scores for 35 students: 14 students scored above 90% on the test and two students scored a 98% and two scored 99%. 8 students scored between 80-89% and 7 students scored between 70-79%. 6 students failed the exam with a score below 70% It will be interesting to note if any of these students elect to take A.P. history next year. I did notice that almost all of the students who failed the Exam also did not turn in their Alexander The Great and Hellenism A.P. homework in on time.
