Unit 1 - Day 12

Writing an AP Calc Assessment 
  • Include calculator and non-calculator items

  • Include multiple choice and free response items

  • Write questions that reflect learning targets and success criteria

  • Determine scoring rubric for FRQs before administering the assessment (see below)

Questions to Include
  • Evaluation of limit expressions using various techniques

  • Writing equivalent limit representations (i.e., graphical to analytic)

  • Identifying locations and types of discontinuities

  • Writing extended continuous functions

  • Scaffolded free response question(s) requiring justification by the Squeeze Theorem

Grading Tips

We recommend that you prepare a rubric for the free response items before you begin grading your quizzes or tests. Know what information is necessary for a complete and correct response and award points when a student presents that information. Many of the “Why did I get marked down?” questions are eliminated when you share the components that earn points.
