Jasinski Reads AP Exams

Professor Jerry P. Jasinski, Chemistry, was selected to participate in the annual reading and scoring of the College Board’s Advanced Placement Examinations this June in Chemistry.

Jerry and roughly 200 other high school and college educators had the opportunity to network and work together for a week in Daytona to read 116,000 AP Chem exams. After a day of training on the College Board’s rubric, Jerry spent the week reading thousands of students’ answers to one question, on intermolecular bonding.

Though Jasinski’s been asked to serve as a Reader before, this was the first year he was able to do it — and he says he’ll likely do it again next year.

He describes the event as an “amazing experience,” particularly exciting because of the uniqueness of having that many educators at different levels in his field in one place. “The interactions were wonderful,” Jasinski says.

The College Board’s Advanced Placement Program (AP) gives capable high school students an opportunity to take college-level courses and examinations. Based on exam performance, students can receive credit and/or advanced placement in college.

This year, more that 3.2 million examinations from more than 30 AP Courses were evaluated by over 10,000 AP Readers from colleges, universities and high schools. Representing many of the finest academic institutions in the world, AP Readers are made up of professional educators from the United States, Canada and abroad.
