Adapting to Changes in AP Exams Brings Out the Best in Ravens

对许多高年级学生来说, 拉文斯克罗夫特在3月份转向远程学习模式,预示着即将发生的事情:取消大学参观, 推迟了sat考试,并从根本上重新调整了全国各地表现优异的学生的春季仪式:大学先修课程复习和考试.

AP coursework at Ravenscroft typically involves a mix of hands-on activities, 演讲, in-depth class discussion and small-group work. The work students and faculty did in adjusting to the new approach was, as Head of Upper School Aaron Sundstrom said, “impressive.”

“从无缝切换课堂讨论到虚拟平台,到让学生为新家庭做好准备, 考试的在线形式, 最大网络彩票正规平台的老师充分利用大学理事会的新数字工具来补充他们自己的课程,确保学生为他们的AP考试做好准备,” he said. “It was a tremendous show of both faculty and student resilience.”
 

“最大网络彩票正规平台马上就开始了。”

AP exams — administered in May under the auspices of the nonprofit 大学委员会 -通常设置为三到四个小时的标准化课程,涵盖数月的大学水平课程. 就像高考一样, 为应对COVID-19而实施的公共卫生限制可能导致今年取消了测试. 但是大学理事会实施了一个新的在线选择,允许学生在材料还新鲜的时候展示他们的知识.

As Ravenscroft Registrar Debbie Pirotte, whose office is responsible for ordering AP exams, said, “大学理事会在创建新考试和在短时间内设置新考试方面做得非常出色.”

Nevertheless, the new format meant fundamental changes in the exam itself. 学生们现在的任务是在45分钟内回答一到两个自由回答问题, limiting how much content mastery they were able to demonstrate. 多项选择题的取消意味着,如果学生对自由回答题的回答不佳,他们可能无法平衡自己的成绩. However, 大学理事会保证,题目的复杂性可以让学生展示他们的知识范围, 他们会因此获得信用.

皮洛特和大学咨询部门忙得不可开交,试图掌握日常变化,为学生提供准确的信息.

最大网络彩票正规平台已经准备好开始行动了,”大学咨询中心的联合主任利亚·普鲁(Lia Prugh)说. “我从家长和学生那里听到的是,他们很感激自己在家能做的事情.”

而少数学生在提交在线考试时遇到了技术问题,不得不注册补考, Pirotte said most students had completed their AP tests by early June. 结果预计将于7月中旬公布.

“他们拥有自己的学识。”

From the perspective of AP teachers at Ravenscroft, 对他们的学生来说,远程学习的转变是成功的,因为它是在更广泛的社区发生空前剧变的时期建立的. 但它要求老师和学生都能运用“最大网络彩票正规平台”的核心能力之一:成长意识.

For AP Physics teacher Lorre Gifford, 考试内容和形式的重大变化意味着她不得不重新考虑如何使用现有的考试资源, accumulated over more than 20 years of teaching the course.

“However, I was impressed and grateful for the resilience, dedication and patience that my students exercised in the process,” she said. “最大网络彩票正规平台制定了在虚拟世界中学习和练习的策略,允许相当无缝地过渡到在线课堂体验, hopefully, 在AP考试中取得成功.”

Many of Gifford’s colleagues agreed.

“在讨论和辩论内容以及将理论与应用联系起来时,没有什么能与课堂相比,” AP Government teacher Phil Kantaros said. 但事实证明,在虚拟教室里备考效果惊人. 最大网络彩票正规平台能够为2020年修订后的考试中的两种作文题做准备. 一路走来, I became more proficient at using the resources provided by the 大学委员会, and I made use of YouTube review videos, which I probably would not have done in a classroom setting.”

AP欧洲历史老师Mary Beth Immediata说,今年考试准备工作的成功很大程度上归功于乌鸦队自己.

这篇评论是他们的, 主动权是他们的, the interest, 订婚, 他们愿意把自己的作品交给助理首席读者审阅——这要求他们提前完成教学大纲——这就是他们的全部,” she said. “They literally owned their learning, and this pandemic simply gave me the opportunity to guide and cheer from the sidelines.”

Immediata wasn’t the only one cheering: on two occasions, the strong work of her AP Euro students taking part in national, 大学委员会-sanctioned online reviews was highlighted by session leaders.

“没有差距。”

随着这一特殊时期对最大网络彩票正规平台国家和世界的长期影响继续显现, the 大学咨询 team is working to determine what impact, if any, the delays and changes in national testing might have on college admissions.

拉文斯克罗夫特的团队表示,未来的录取决定将在多大程度上考虑AP课程,还有待观察. 随着越来越多的学院和大学将SAT和ACT等标准化考试定为可选考试, there may be a greater emphasis on application essays and students’ personal qualities. 根据Prugh的说法, this shift is likely to boost Ravenscroft students, who typically have excellent writing and communication skills. 同时, 他们期望联合国军司令部系统, and likely many other public universities, will continue to accept credit for AP scores of 3 and above.

尽管存在不确定性, 最大网络彩票正规平台告诉最大网络彩票正规平台的学生,他们不需要过分强调他们无法控制的情况,” Prugh said.

As for this unprecedented semester of remote learning, 当其他私立学校选择采用及格-不及格标准时,十大网络彩票平台大全学校却选择了传统的评分方式. As a result, 大学咨询办公室计划对Ravenscroft的虚拟学习进行非常明确的说明.

“没有差距,”普鲁格说. “学生们很快就进入了远程课程,他们的期望与在校课程非常相似. That will be communicated to colleges.”

AP欧洲历史老师Mary Beth Immediata分享了她的学生在全国在线考试评论中的工作:

自从最大网络彩票正规平台开始审核以来,AP欧洲的孩子们一直在向AP虚拟提交作业练习挑战,并很高兴收到助理首席读者和今年DBQ问题领导者的个性化反馈, but then 迪伦·诺拉22届 became a rock star, much to their delight.

Then Ravenscroft got a shout-out, and the kids were tickled as well.
