AP TESTS 9 UNITS

In January and February of 2022 my AP Chemistry tests will become available on the site for the first time ever. Below you will find details about their release, their content, and the rolling release that will occur according to the schedule shown. The tests reflect my own “breakpoints” in terms of how I group and assess AP content during the year, but as you’ll see by reading on there is a lot of flexibility built-in for teachers to adapt to their own needs. Initially I will release a set of eleven tests that will cover one complete cycle of assessment in AP chemistry.


Each test will follow the same format, namely;

  • Be in WORD (.docx) format meaning that tests can be edited to suit local needs
  • Be only be made available to people with verifiable teacher status. I’m not naive! I know that this guarantees nothing in terms of security, but currently it’s the best that I can do to help maintain some level of control over what gets into the public domain. Combined with the editing potential, this should offer some level of help to teachers who are looking to keep things secure as possible. You will need a school email address, and your persona must be verifiable via the faculty/staff page of a school web site. It will be possible to associate non-school email addresses with the tests, but not until after your status has been verified
  • Be composed of questions that add up to a total of 40 points. On a pure pro-rata basis, 40 points represents 78 mins of an AP chemistry exam time. Given that each test covers a relatively small sliver of what a full exam can test, it is reasonable to assume that the individual tests should take less than 78 minutes to complete i.e., a block of time that’s likely to be approaching common period lengths for AP classes. That, together with the ability to edit, should make the tests assessment vehicles that are close to being “ready out of the box” for most situations
  • Will contain MCQs and FRQs, thus mimicking the real AP exam. The specific breakdown of MCQs and FRQs will vary in each test, but there will be a minimum of 10, and a maximum of 20 MCQs on each test. The MCQs are each worth 1 point, with the balance of points being made up by FRQs. The MCQs will all have four answer choices, and will follow current AP format of some being grouped together in sets and associated with a stem, and will avoid negative statements such as ,”Which of the following does NOT ..?” etc. Unlike the real exam, each part of each FRQ question will flag the number of points available
  • All questions will be associated with a LO that will be flagged on the test
  • Will come with worked answers for FRQs and correct answer choices for MCQs. This is what teachers want! As is the case with all of my materials, I will happily explain the rationale behind any MCQ if you need help
  • Will NOT contain any AP, secure content. Although the idea of ‘secure’ content is a bit of a joke in 2022, I am a rule follower, and I will not contribute to the insecurity of CB material
