2006 USH Released Exam
This publication provides multiple-choice questions and answers, and describes the process of scoring the free-response questions. It also includes examples of students' actual responses, scoring standards, and the commentary that explains why the responses received the scores they did. Finally, there is an entire chapter of statistical data about the exam and exam performance for that year, and advice on interpreting AP® grades.
This Released Exam provides a useful classroom tool but it does not align to the redesigned AP US History course that will be taught starting in fall 2014.
NOTE: Download a correction to this book here, which should replace the scoring worksheet found within this Released Exam. Beginning with the May 2011 AP Exams, the method for scoring multiple-choice sections has changed; the document reflects this change.
