Just got back from grading those APCS Part B questions.
I saw many things:
and the really really ugly.
Saddest moment: Someone in my question group found money in the exam booklet with a note. Nice try at a bribe.
Some observations to those who care:
1. Follow directions- only do what is asked on the question- lot of student got nailed on this.
2. Write neat- hard to read code- may have cost some students points because we could not legibly read the code.
3. Do not get "cute" with the code- if you can do "cute" do it correctly. Most people tried "cute" but fail miserably. Just solve the program the simpliest way.
Six days of grading 8am 4:15pm. Not much at Clemson.
We were with the AP Human Geography crowd.
AP Chemistry and AP Env Science was at Clemson the week before us.
A worker for ETS said your grades will be sent to you at the first of the month- you should know around July 4.
Good luck- on your scores. Any other questions on grading specs-let me know.
