## Unit 5 - Day 9

##### All Units
###### 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
• Determining the concavity of a curve given data in various formats (equation of f(x), graph of f’(x), tabular data), with proper justification

• Determining the relative extrema of a function given data in various formats (equation of f(x), graph of f’(x), tabular data), with at least one question requiring the use of the Second Derivative Test as justification

• Finding absolute extrema given an equation of a function; students must use the Candidates test to justify their answer

• Sketch a possible graph of f(x) given a graph of f’(x)

• Conceptual questions requiring students to identify relative extrema or concavity from equations involves unknown constants a and b
