Practice Test 3 Grading scale:
 
 4/19 –  Monday – “D” Day – Homework
Directions:
2019 – Part 2 practice – It will be counted as a quiz grade.
Complete the Part 2 section of last years test (2019).  Pretend that you have just sat for 90 minutes finishing the multiple choice section of the test.  You will be given a 10 minute break and then Part 2 (Free Response Section Begins).  Please do all of this on the shared google doc that I emailed you today..
 
Multiple choice = 50% of the test
Free Response = 50% of the test
 
Question 1:   10 points
Question 2:  10 points
Question 3:    4 points
Question 4:    4 points
Question 5:    4 points
Question 6:    3 points
Question 7:    3 points
Question 8:   3 points 
 
Now you will need to write or upload images of your work in the shared google doc that I will send you today for the part 2 section.
You will not have any space to answer the questions in between the questions.    Make sure you label appropriately on your lined paper!!
 
Example: Question 1:
 
                    a) (i)  Your work
 
                         (ii)  Your silly work
 
Do not make it hard for the AP reader to FIND your answer and do not make it hard for them to Read Your answers (make it legible!!)
 
   a) This section is a timed section and will be 90 minutes long BUT I DO NOT want you to time yourself. Please go through this methodically.  Answer every question no matter how long it takes to complete the entire 8 questions.
 
THERE ARE NO OMISSIONS! WE HAVE COMPLETED THE COURSE!
   b) Once you complete this part 2 section please review to see how many points your earned for each question WITH the AP Central Key then Review with my Key to understand how complete each question.   I wrote my key days after the AP questions were released last year.

4/23 –  Friday – “D” Day  Homework –
 
1. Review the Statistics for Practice Test 4 (2nd AP Test that we have just taken).
 
Practice Test 4 Multiple Choice Data:
 
mean =  58.6%  (34.00/58 – raw score)  SD = 6.30
 1. 50% 16. 79% 31. 36% 46. 71%

 6. 100% 21. 43% 36. 57% 51. 29% 122. 36%

 14. 64% 29. 21% 44. 79%
 15. 100% 30. 64% 45. 29%
Last 2 MC Tests:
                                                 mean                        Sd           % to get 5   REds
 Practice Test 3  56.3% 7.08      78%     17
 Practice Test 4 58.6%          6.30      72%     16
*So Our average went up +2.3 and our Sd went down -.78. This means that the class answered more correctly and the class got statistically closer together in scores (smaller sd).
If you consider that the AP thinks that practice test 5 was a harder test than practice test 4
(needed a lower score to get a 5 for Test 4) then we really did better than the numbers show!
 
2. Review every single question that you guessed on and answered incorrectly with me using the practice test 4 review video.  It is shared privately.
 
*Do not share my links or the printed materials anywhere,
 
End of week 2!
