AP Statistic Test

I had eight of my 12 students take the test. Most felt the same way
about the test that the other post have mentioned.

They said the multiple choice was fairly easy and they finished it in
anywhere from a little less than an hour to an hour and fifteen minutes.

They felt the biggest problem they encountered with the free response
was the time factor. They suggested that for next year I need to find
out more about the matrix the graders will be using to score the free
response so that they don't spend time including more information than
might be required.

I told them that I felt like all the information I had been requiring
them to include in their answers was not "extraneous" or unimportant and
perhaps this being the first year, the free response was a bit off.
Anyway, most felt very confident they had done well. I guess we will not
know exactly how well they actually did until June though.

I'd like to thank everyone on this list for making my first year
teaching this course a much better and more informed year than it would
have been without this resource. There are too many of you to thank
individually for taking the time to share your knowledge, comments, and
expertise, so here is a big collective THANKS. Take Care...
