News on AP Psychology

As with most years, there have been a number of changes in the AP Psychology Program. Below you should find a listing of some of the major items in no particular order.
  • This summer, for the first time, AP teachers were able to find their student's AP exam scores online. For the most part, the process worked extremely well and was, in my opinion (Kent), a hundred times better than waiting for the paper reports. Make sure to look over the Instructional Planning Report in addition to the scores. Go to https://scores.collegeboard.com for more information.
  • For those of us in AP Psychology, many feel the biggest change this year has been the moving of the AP Psyc exam date from the second Tuesday to the first Monday of AP testing. Last year the AP Psychology exam was on May 11th. The 2011 exam is scheduled for May 2nd. Please be aware, if your school's spring break is based on Easter, May 2nd might be the Monday students come back from break. For a complete schedule of AP exams go to http://apcentral.collegeboard.com/apc/public/exam/calendar/index.html
  • No doubt the largest change for AP teachers and students as a whole, is the removal of the quarter point deduction for an incorrect answer. Starting in 2011, a student's score will be based only on how many questions they get correct. For more information on this change and revised worksheets for scoring the 2004 and 2007 released AP Psychology exams, go to http://apcentral.collegeboard.com/apc/public/courses/212187.html

The February 5th date in San Mateo has a bad link. The link takes the viewer to a Pennsylvania physics AP course.
I am interested in the San Mateo date site and date, is the date and site good? Thanks.
