AP® Biology Exam
Reshetar, Rosemary
College Board, Slides presented at the Large Scale Assessments Session of the Workshop on Developing Assessments to Meet the Goals of the 2012 Framework for K-12 Science Education (Washington, D.C., Sep 13, 2012)
On 9/13/12, the Workshop on Developing Assessments to Meet the Goals of the 2012 Framework for K-12 Science Education was held at the National Academies of Science. The workshop was organized and led by the NRC Committee on Developing Assessments of Science Proficiency in K-12 (co-chaired by James Pellegrino and Mark Wilson) and targeted to state assessment leaders. Rosemary represented the College Board as one of three panelists in a large-scale assessment session focused on assessments that assess science practices in conjunction with core ideas and cross cutting concepts, similar to those depicted in the Framework. Focus was on how these strategies can be used to measure learning as envisioned in the Framework. The revised AP Biology Course and Exam which went into effect this fall were presented as an example of how College Board utilized the Evidence Centered Design process for the course and exam review. Of particular interest was the integration of content knowledge with science practices into the learning objectives of the course, and ultimately into the exam to be offered in May.
