The AR AIMS Advanced Placement Science Mock Reading Workshop will be held April 3 & 4, 2023.  This workshop is for teachers of AP Biology, AP Chemistry, AP Environmental Science, or AP Physics 1 who wish to gain more experience in scoring student AP exam responses that would qualify for points based on both AP scoring rubrics and the expertise of current AP readers.  Participants will work under the leadership of an experienced AP Reader or Question Leader who is currently serving as an AP Reader at the College Board’s national AP Science Readings as well as collaborating with an experienced group of AP teachers in a small group setting.

ADE allows AP teachers to receive their 5 year AP “renewal” by attending the AR AIMS Fall AP Workshop AND the Spring Mock Reading Workshop. You must attend both workshops in the same school year for this renewal. (Note: New AP teachers must attend an APSI for their initial endorsement.) This workshop does not provide Pre-AP endorsement.

We will be using the FREE RESPONSE QUESTIONS from 2022 for each Mock Exam.  (APES-2022 FRQ Set 1)
