David Hoppe to Serve as AP Reader for Seventh Year

Upper School Math Department Chair David Hoppe will serve as an AP Reader for Statistics during this year’s annual AP Reading. This will be the seventh straight year Hoppe has served as an AP Statistics Reader for the College Board’s Advanced Placement Program.
The AP program offers 38 courses in a wide variety of subject areas. This May 2017, the College Board anticipates that nearly 2.6 million exceptional students from around the globe will take approximately 4.9 million AP Examinations. AP Exams consist of a portfolio assessment, or contain multiple-choice and free-response questions that provide students with the opportunity to demonstrate their mastery of rigorous, college-level work.
In June 2017, approximately 15,900 college faculty and AP teachers from around the world will evaluate and score about 21 million free-response answers. As a reader, Hoppe will:
  • Receive training in consistent application of the scoring standards and use those standards to score student responses.
  • Interact with members of the AP Development Committee responsible for revising the AP Course description and developing the exam, giving and receiving information about the current state of teaching and learning in the discipline.
  • Discuss achievement, assessment and teaching strategies with college faculty and AP teachers.
