AP Human Geography FRQs

"Based upon student reactions to their multiple choice exams, I can tell that the types of questions are NOT, 'choose the correct definition for the vocabulary term.' Instead, the types of questions are leading towards giving an example of a real world phenomenon and then requesting students to tell which term best applies. And though I have not seen an actual test, it sounds like the kids were saying that the questions require more reading than the answers (I would actually prefer that to the alternative)."

AP Human Geography test results

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."

 

2012 AP Human Geography scores:

(These may shift slightly as late exams are scored)

The conflicts range from major wars whose impact is felt around world (e.g. Islamic State) to minor disagreements over remote, uninhabited rocks (e.g. Rockall Island).

Seth Dixon's curator insight, April 13, 2016 3:58 PM

Seen from space, this planet is a blue marble, a world where the surface is dominated by water.  The Pacific Ocean alone is nearly half of the surface area of our planet.  Add in polar ice caps and the rivers and lakes, we can see that water profoundly impacts Earth.  Yet most of that water is salt water (97%) and two-thirds of our non-salty water locked away in ice sheets (2% of the global water). Everything else, rivers, lakes, marshes, aquifers, and reservoirs represent that remaining 1% of the Earth's water supply--and that 1% of water is what sustains human settlements and allows for agricultural expansion.  The geography of this 1% is highly uneven and a huge water crisis can cause governments crumble--the fact that this precious resources has been wasted and polluted becomes more frustrating as water resources are being strained in so many places.  In this article, it  describes 8 major metro areas where water is being depleted rapidly -- Tokyo, Miami, London, Cairo, Sao Paulo, Beijing, Bangalore and Mexico City.
