  1. Have you heard of BasisEd? one of the top 5 schools system in the country. So when in the news some school like that comes to light I usually ask myself what are they doing right that I can use in my homeschool... There are many things, but one thing jumped out at me... they start their AP exams in 8th grade with the US History AP. By the time they take the May test they have covered US History for many years, and are prepared. By graduation they have taken 9 to 11 AP exams. They spend their Senior Year doing a Thesis, or a project that of course needs to be aproved. My kids are in elementary school. so why am I still thinking about AP tests? If I set my eyes on the US History AP, then I have a few years to drill the content into my kids and then let them try it. What are yourt thoughts with mimiking succesful "schools" or with AP tests early on? If you have taken AP courses, how have you prepared your student? Thanks Mrs Q
  2. So it's time to put hat in hand and start cold calling high schools looking for exam locations for AP tests again. At least this year it's going to be local calls. Last year we were moving around the same time as the exam registration. So I was calling from one side of the country to the other side, with no idea where we would be living, trying to find hospitable exam locations. This year we are newly arrived in another new state. One course (Computer Science) is only offered in one high school on the island. But at least the aren't doing Comparative Government this year. That is only offered at one public high school in the state, and it's not on this island. Not one public school in the state offere AP German or AP Latin. Guess we'll be looking towards private schools for those. I was actually mentally drafting an essay about this on the treadmill last week. I was dwelling on the gap between equal access rhetoric with respect to these door opening exams and the reality that a student from many high schools may not have access to the exams that actually get them college credit. There is a disproportionate impact against students who self-study, get outside tutors or who want to create small study groups independent of their high school's official structure. When I was in high school, my district only offered one AP course (US History) and it was only offered at limited high schools with a cross town agreement from other district schools. But I was allowed a release to travel to the other school to take the exam, based only on my work done in a non-AP honors course. I did well enough to validate 2 semesters of US history in college. But I don't feel like this would be encouraged or necessarily even allowed in most schools today.
  3. My DS (in OH) has been studying several subjects this year with the intent of taking the AP exams for the subjects in May. We didn't get a syllabus approved by the College Board, but have followed the syllabus of several of the courses that are given as examples on the College Board web site. In researching AP related info on the Forums the consensus seems to be no approved syllabus = no AP designation. However in looking at the Ohio Department of Education documents on the ODE website I found repeated reference to allowing designation of AP on a transcript if the AP exam was taken and the student received a score 3,4, or 5. These documents were in reference to a credit flexibility option (testing out). Has anyone had experience with this - the College Board allowing AP designation based on the exam scores? Thanks in advance for any insight you might have on this. References "The College Board will allow the AP subject area to be listed on the transcript if a student in Ohio meets either of two conditions: a) takes an authorized AP course; b) scores 3 or better on the associated AP Exam. from document https://education.ohio.gov/getattachment/Topics/School-Choice/Credit-Flexibility-Plan/Credit-Flexibility-Guidance-Documents/Advanced-Placement-Exams.pdf.aspx "We just received some guidance yesterday from the College Board on that point. If you use the AP test as a test-out instrument, it must be given in May when all the other AP tests are given. If students score a three or higher on that test, then they’re eligible to receive that AP credit." http://education.ohio.gov/getattachment/Topics/School-Choice/Credit-Flexibility-Plan/Credit-Flexibility-Web-Conference-Series/Audio-Transcript_08_17_10.pdf.aspx
  4. I would put this in the other thread about AP's (linking to encourage views) but this is just about Foreign Language ones due to the "recording" requirements. We haven't had a problem about this in the past. But now, the local international school will not let dd take her French AP there saying that 1. she does not have experience with the CD recording equipment so she can't take the exam 2. they want to leave the places open for their own students. Already they charge a fortune - almost $200 for the exam... So I asked - if she came in to practice on the equipment, could she? But no, they want places. So then I asked if she managed to take the AP at another school (which is 1 1/2 hr drive away - and I still don't know if she can) this year and got recording experience, would she be able to do the German AP next year because a. she would have experience b. German is much less taken than French so there should be lots of places But they would not budge, just repeating 1 and 2... Will we end up having to go to the US to do AP's? But then I wondered if any of you have run into this recording requirement problem? Thanks, Joan
  5. My child is currently enrolled in K12 through a state charter. She is taking classes a grade level above and all honors classes, but this is just to easy for her. She is currently in a pool of applicants for Stanford Online High School, but the competition is fierce and global, so I don't hold a lot of hope for her being accepted even with near perfect ACT scores and a 4.0. I need some alternatives. She wants to continue with some kind of online school, any suggestions for a challenging and rigorous high school program? Thanks :)
  6. Here's a bit of a spin-off from my other post. Thanks to all who are bearing with me. :001_smile: I'm hoping to get my highschooler prepared to do well on most of the AP and CLEP exams listed below. I'm hoping DIVE can live up to it's claim to do this, if my ds puts in the required effort, of course. Here's a quote from Dr. Shoreman's blog on the topic: CLEP Professor is a test preparation program designed to prepare students for select math and science CLEP and AP exams. CLEP Professor is available for CLEP College Algebra, Precalculus, Calculus, Biology and Chemistry, and AP Calculus (AB Exam), Biology, Chemistry, and Physics (B). If a student completed a High School Math or Science course using DIVE products, they should be able to spend a few more weeks using CLEP Professor and then pass the CLEP or AP Exam. I would love to know if DIVE with CLEP Professor was sufficient in your experience and also if it was NOT. :001_smile: For science, which is my greatest concern at the moment, I'm currently thinking of this schedule with the DIVE CD's and BJU texts where recommended and Saxon Physics. 9th Integrated Physics/Chemistry 10th Biology with AP exam 11th Chemistry with AP exam 12th Physics with AP exam Any and all information and help would be appreciated. Thanks!! ETA: He would not take BOTH CLEP and AP where both are available. I'm not that insane. Probably where there are 2 choices we would go with the AP.
  7. and if so, in which part of the US are you? My son's school is asking when he'll be able to send them (required for entry). We're having them sent to my sister who will then send them to us "express", since they have taken so long to get over here in years past when sent to us directly.... Thanks! Joan
  8. I am so anxious to get the report on our first AP experience, but I don't want to call and pay $8 for each score!!! How long does it typically take?:toetap05: :D
  9. My son starts 10th grade this fall...to date we have not undertaken AP designated courses...this fall I am probably submitting my writing course for AP credit, and next year he will take AP lit...this fall he is taking Physics having completed Biology and Chemistry. I do have an AP Biology text..if we teach this...can I claim it is an AP course? Have others done this? Thanks, trying to avoid CC courses or online courses...Distance and scheduling issues..
  10. I tried a search but couldn't turn up an answer so forgive me if this has been discussed before. I am looking ahead to high school and planned for my ds to take some AP courses. I am not necessarily looking for the college credit but to show rigor/ have an outside verification of performance, etc. If the purpose of taking AP exams is to beef up a college application, does that mean that they need to be taken before the senior year? What purpose does scoring well on an AP exam at the end of senior year serve? I guess I had always thought of APs as taken mostly in the senior year but maybe I'm wrong? Does it just look good to have the course on the transcript when you apply even though you haven't completed it/ taken the test? :confused:
  11. Interesting article: http://detnews.com/article/20100513/SCHOOLS/5130446/1026/ Thought many may find this interesting as they are planning their coursework.
  12. What exactly are AP classes? Are they a follow-up to a normal class? Or do they substitute the normal class? For example, Chemistry. Would a student take the regular Chemistry class (and see if he likes it) followed the following year by the AP class? Or would he jump right into the AP class? In other words, is previous knowledge of the subject expected, or do they teach from scratch? Forgive this non-American. Over here, when I was a young one, everyone would take a year of Chemistry, and those who liked it followed up with a second year. All sciences were like.
  13. When you have AP Foreign Language test scores, some colleges may give you enough credits to be equivalent to 2 years of language study in colleges. I am wondering if it means that AP is at the level of 2 years of language study in college. Conversely, I wonder if someone with 2 years of dual language study in college will be ready to take AP successfully when they need AP scores. BTW, my kids have chosen German to study. What's your kids' experience on AP tests if they have?
