APUSH scores

Congratulations! I am very proud of each and every one of you for your hard work in my class and/or your performance on the exam. It was a great ride this year and the juniors coming in have some very big shoes to fill.

Enjoy the rest of your summer and please feel free to come back and say “hi” next year!

The scores are out and  51.8%  of you guys (that’s 72 of you) earned  either a 4 or a 5. That’s compared to only 28.6% of the global population scoring 4 or 5s.

30.22 % (42) of you earned  3s compared to only 22.5% globally

17.99% (25) of you earned 1s or 2s but that is way, way lower than the 48.9 globally who earned a 1 or 2.

Your class was the most I have tested in the 4 years I have been teaching APUSH at Wheeler and your class has the 2nd highest average score at 3.507.

ICYMI 4/4 APUSH Test Review

This is what was given to the classes that met on Friday and some (2B) had time to work on it in class.  It is a very valuable tool to review the concepts, people, places things, and what-not prior to the APUSH exam. If you know the stuff, you can understand documents regarding it & write about it.

Please work on it as part of your exam prep and whenever you are in class prior to the exam, we will go over as much of it as we can.
