Denver AP English Mock Reading: Feb. 20-21, 2020

January 16, 2020

The Mock Reading is a preparatory professional development event for AP teachers that mirrors the College Board’s process for scoring AP exams at the annual College Board Reading. Participating teachers receive practice exams for their AP courses, which students will take prior to the Mock Reading. Teachers bring these completed assessments to the Mock Reading where they are normed by a College Board Leader prior to collaboratively scoring one another’s assessments with student identifiers removed.
