The College Board, and your moderator, would like to remind members of electronic discussion groups that students cannot, under any circumstance, discuss the multiple-choice section of the exam with anyone (including their AP teachers). Students sign an agreement to this effect on exam day. Further, students ?may not discuss their specific free-response questions with anyone unless they are released on the College Board website in about two days.?
Teachers may review and discuss with their students the free-response questions posted on AP Central 48 hours after each exam administration. (Note, however, that free-response questions that appear on the alternate forms of the exam are not disclosed and cannot be discussed.)
These policies help ensure the validity of AP Exam scores, and the College Board appreciates all the work you do to ensure that the AP Program's standards and procedures for administering exams are maintained and followed.
Please do not attempt to post any messages to the EDG about the 2012 free-response questions until they have been posted on AP Central. Last year, if I recall correctly, they were posted around 5 pm Eastern Daylight Savings Time on Friday. I will post a message to the EDG when the FRQ?s are posted on AP Central.
