Does anyone test their students regularly using the AP format? I have always used a tradiational test with a calculator and no calculator portion, but think I would like to try to immitate the AP exam. Surely it would better prepare my students for the exam, right? I have a group (AB and BC) that seem to be a little lower performing that years past and want to try some new strategies to help them and this seemed like a good one.

If so, are you happy testing that way? What resources do you use for creating the tests/ruberics? (Do you do it all from scratch? I definitely don't have time for that!) How many MC and FRQ do you give? For what length class period?

I use the Larson Calculus, 9th edition.

Thanks for any thoughts, advice, resources.
