Advanced Placement Course Description. Statistics.
College Entrance Examination Board, New York, NY.
The Advanced Placement (AP) program is a cooperative educational effort of secondary schools, colleges, and the College Board that consists of 30 college-level courses and examinations in 17 academic disciplines for highly motivated students in secondary schools. AP courses are offered in more than 11,000 high schools and are recognized by nearly 2,900 U.S. and foreign colleges and universities that grant credit, advanced placement, or both to students who have performed satisfactorily on the AP examinations. The AP program provides teaching materials, course descriptions, and examinations based on these descriptions, but it does not prescribe the textbook, schedule of lessons, or teaching techniques. Examinations are administered in May, scored in June, and reported in July of each year. This booklet describes the AP program and its course and examination in Statistics. A topic outline, a discussion of the instructional emphasis of the AP Statistics course, some sample questions, other details about the Statistics examination, and some suggested resources for teaching AP statistics are presented. Information about test construction is also included. An order form for AP publications is attached. (SLD)
