Interpreting AP Scores
If you have observed…
Most scores in a subject are 1’s and 2’s:
o Review the course content against the published Course Description on AP Central to ensure that
students are being taught what the exams measure. This is especially true if students whose
classroom scores are high do not achieve at least average scores on AP Exams.
o Consider the opportunities you have had for Professional Development and factor in student
readiness (motivation, reading and writing skills, prior course work).
Most AP Scores in a subject are 4’s and 5’s:
o It could be possible that the selection criteria for the class are overly rigorous. Consider opening the
class to more students.
Scores on the multiple-choice and free-response sections of the AP Exams are widely
divergent:
o Implement practice sessions on test skills for multiple-choice exams, or more assignments during the
school year that emphasize writing and organizational skills.
