Unit 1 - Day 18

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

  • Questions that include multiple representations of functions (tabular, graphical, equation)

  • Justifying continuity of a function at a point, or explaining why there is a discontinuity and identifying the type of discontinuity

  • Contextual problem 

  • Error analysis of a common student error

  • Scaffolded FRQ requiring justification by the IVT

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.
