Advanced Placement® Summer Institute: A Survey of Florida AP® Teachers. Research Notes. RN-39
Godfrey, Kelly E.
Advanced Placement Program Summer Institute (APSI) courses provide teachers with an overview of the curriculum, structure, and content of specific AP courses. Attention is devoted not only to the development of curriculum but also to teaching strategies and the relationship of the course to the AP Examination. During the summers of 2006 and 2007, 168 institutes were held for new and experienced AP teachers in the state of Florida at nine institutions of higher education; in 2006, 79 were held; and there were 89 held in 2007. In the spring of 2008, evaluation researchers at the College Board developed a survey to solicit feedback on participants' impressions of the APSIs offered in Florida, as well as changes they made on their AP curriculum and exam preparation as a direct result of attending the institute(s).
