The individual project is developed based on several source documents made available to students in January, and consists of a Written Argument, a Multimedia Presentation, and an Oral Defense. Students are allowed to work on either essay within this total time period. The free-response section essays and open-ended questions and through-course performance tasks are scored at the annual AP Reading held during the first two weeks in June.
The academic paper is evaluated based on the content, structure, format, and conclusions of the paper as well as your ability to properly and accurately cite sources. The subscores help music departments make appropriate decisions about credit and placement when they offer separate courses for written theory and aural skills.
The LEQ only provides a prompt and no sort of stimulus, so a large amount of outside information is necessary. The paper contributes 75 percent of the AP Research score, while the presentation and oral defense contribute 25 percent.
The Calculus AB subscore is designed to give colleges and universities more information about your abilities. Each answer sheet is scanned and the total number of correct responses equals the multiple-choice score.
Note also that the number of multiple choice options is being reduced from five to four at the same time. The aural component subscore includes multiple-choice questions related to recorded musical examples, two melodic dictation questions, two harmonic dictation questions and two sight-singing questions.
The work during the school year consists of two "through-course" tasks: It also includes free-response questions calling for realization of a figured bass, realization of a chord progression from Roman numerals and composition of a bass line to fit a given melody.
Students have forty minutes to answer these, and they count for twenty percent of the exam score. The essays are out of seven points and six points, respectively. Each question has three parts, making for a total of 9 parts within the SAQ section.
The section begins with a minute reading period where students are advised to read both the documents for DBQ. Use of the subscore in this manner is consistent with the philosophy of the courses, since common topics are tested at the same conceptual level in both Calculus AB and Calculus BC.
The team project contributes 20 percent of the score; the individual project contributes 35 percent of the score; and the end-of-course exam contributes 45 percent of the score. The multiple-choice section is scored by computer. Students are required to analyze and synthesize the documents of the DBQ, but some outside information is still needed.
In AP Research, students are assessed on an academic paper, a presentation, and an oral defense of their research. Specially appointed college professors and experienced AP teachers score this section of the exam. Many colleges and universities grant credit and placement for scores of 3, 4 or 5; however, each college decides which scores it will accept.
Students are advised to spend 45 minutes writing the DBQ and then 40 writing the LEQ, but there are no rules on when each essay must be worked on.
The nonaural component subscore includes multiple-choice questions requiring score analysis and other multiple-choice questions not related to recorded musical examples. It consists of 55 questions to be answered in 55 minutes based on the accompanying sources. It is further recommended that the college or university use the overall score to set policy for students seeking general humanities credits.
There are three prompts for the LEQ, but only one needs to be chosen. The end-of-course exam has two parts: These composite scores are then translated into the 5-point scale using statistical processes designed to ensure that, for example, a 3 this year reflects the same level of achievement as a 3 last year.
The end-of-course exam does not have a multiple-choice section.
The exam features a new section Section I Part B that requires three short answer questions, one of which is selected from two options. However, students may begin writing during this time; most students take notes on the documents in order to plan out the DBQ.AP Central.
