About the Mock Exam 

The AP-TIP Mock Exam provides mock exams (using previously released AP exams from the College Board®) to implement training on scoring; here, teachers score their program AP Exams in a format similar to a College Board AP Scoring.

Teachers and students retain the scored AP exams to use as formative assessment tools: teachers use the data to develop lessons leading into the AP Exam weeks, and students are able to use the scored exams to determine their own strengths and weaknesses prior to AP Exams. The AP Scoring experience is considered the most powerful professional development the College Board offers, and the AP-TIP Mock Exam mirrors this experience.

Benefits of the Mock Exam 

The AP-TIP Mock Exam benefits both teachers and students. The Mock Exam:

  • Reflects the full workload of the AP Exam
  • Gives the student an idea of the pacing and endurance required for the AP Exam
  • Offers each student practice with testing mechanics (calculators, formula sheets, multiple choice grids, free response answer booklet formats, etc.)
  • Provides information on student strengths and where improvements are needed
  • Helps the student formulate a review plan for the AP Exam
  • Improves student performance on the AP Exam
  • Helps build confidence as students navigate challenging and enriching AP courses
Mock Exam Administration and Scoring

The AP Mock Exams have two important components: course rosters and the AP Mock Exam itself.

As a program teacher, you will receive your course's spreadsheet populated with your course roster. Ensure that the students on this list are correct—your access and qualifying score goal awards are tied to this list. Only students on the official AP Mock Exam student list will receive the $100 award for a qualifying score. You will receive an email with instructions mid-January, so please mark your calendar.

As a program teacher, you will receive an AP Mock Exam (multiple-choice and free response questions) for each student on your roster plus one exam for your reference. Each student will also be assigned a de-identified label for the exam. You will have a three-week window to administer the AP Mock Exam. Ideally, the exam will be administered in a three-hour setting (although this may not always be the case). Please note that AP Mock Exams may not leave the building with the students.
Teachers bring their students’ Mock Exams to the AP Mock Exam Reading. Exams are randomly sorted and distributed for scoring, and teachers are trained on AP Exam scoring standards. Teachers who have been assigned to teach more than one AP course (for example, both AP Language and AP Literature) must choose one course for training and deposit the other course's exams in the appropriate room to be scored.
Both the scoring training and actual scoring are conducted under the supervision of a College Board Reader or Table Leader. For some courses, the Chief Reader has been engaged to conduct the Mock Exam Reading. At the conclusion of the scoring, teachers address content and conceptual issues that emerged and are provided strategies to support student learning.
