The AP Chemistry Course Audit: A Fertile Ground for Identifying and Addressing Misconceptions about the Course and Process
Schwenz, Richard W.; Miller, Sheldon
Journal of Chemical Education, v91 n9 p1362-1367 Sep 2014
The advanced placement course audit was implemented to standardize the college-level curricular and resource requirements for AP courses. While the process has had this effect, it has brought with it misconceptions about how much the College Board intends to control what happens within the classroom, what information is required to be included in a syllabus submission, and how far the audit requirements extend. Each of these misconceptions will be addressed in the context of a historical view of the process, and some advice for teachers in preparing their AP chemistry syllabus for review will be provided.
