2004 AP(R) Computer Science A and Computer Science AB Released Exams
This publication contains complete copies of the 2004 AP Computer Science A and Computer Science AB Exams. For Section I (the multiple-choice questions) in both exams, the book provides the questions and correct answers, along with statistics showing students' performance on each question. For Section II (the free-response or essay portion), Released Exams includes the scoring guidelines used by the AP Exam Readers, examples of actual student responses, and commentary that explains why the responses received their scores.
In addition, the 2004 AP® Computer Science A and AP Computer Science AB Released Exams features background information about how the exams were developed, a description of the scoring process, an explanation of the conversion of questions' scores into AP grades, overviews of students' performance on the exams, and a diagnostic guide for each exam to help teachers analyze student results to find overall strengths and weaknesses in their understanding of the course.
Materials included in the Released Exams may not reflect the current AP Course Descriptions or exams in this subject, and teachers are advised to take this into account as they use these materials. For up-to-date information about these AP courses and their exams, please download the official AP Course Descriptions from the AP Central® Web site at apcentral.collegeboard.org.
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.
