AP moves to less breadth, more depth, more application

AP moves to less breadth, more depth, more application | Oakland County ELA Common Core | Scoop.it

The College Board today announced the release of redesigned AP programs for U.S. history and physics, with a focus on reducing the amount of content coverage required to allow more time for studying key concepts in greater depth.

 

The new exams for both subjects will feature fewer multiple-choice questions and increase opportunities for students to apply their skills and knowledge.

 

In U.S. history, for instance, the number of multiple-choice questions will be chopped down from 80 to 36.

 

As for U.S. history, the key objectives of the changes include:

• Alignment with evolving U.S. history curriculum at the nation's top colleges and universities;

• Providing teachers and students flexibility to focus on specific historical topics, events, and issues in greater depth; and

• Increasing student practice of historical thinking skills as central to understanding history.
