AP Human Geo students did best on the walls/barrier question (#1), while many struggled with the international migration question (#3).— Trevor Packer (@AP_Trevor) June 12, 2012
On Twitter, College Board’s Head of AP testing Trevor Packer discussed some preliminary results about the AP Human Geography test. Packer also noted in other tweets that: "AP Human Geography students showed stronger learning this year than in the past--smaller percentage of 1s, higher percentages of 4s/5s."
"College professors say: AP Human Geo students who score 1s need more critical interpretation of maps and cause/effect focus in essays."
"In terms of really distinguishing which AP Human Geo students deserve college credit, Question 3 was the most effective."
