AP Course Audit Information

The AP Program thanks the thousands of educators who provided detailed feedback on the draft requirements circulated last fall, which has resulted in significant changes to the original course criteria. In fact, every single one of the criteria has been revised based on your suggestions and recommendations. As a result, these criteria now reflect a powerful national consensus, across colleges, universities, and public and private secondary schools, regarding which elements are typically found in college-level curricula.

Please review the curricular and resource requirements for each of your AP courses, along with the guidelines for preparing your syllabus for review. For courses you plan to offer in the 2007-08 academic year you may submit your AP Course Audit materials any time between August 1, 2006, and June 1, 2007.

The following AP Course Audit resources are currently available on AP Central: http://apcentral.collegeboard.com/courseaudit/resources

  • Annotated Sample Syllabi. Multiple sample syllabi in each AP subject illustrate the variety of ways a course can meet the curricular requirements.

  • Syllabus Self-evaluation Checklist. The checklist enables teachers to evaluate their syllabi prior to submission to ensure all required elements are included.

  • Samples of Evidence that Satisfy the AP Curricular Requirements. Multiple samples of evidence in each AP subject illustrate the variety of ways curricular requirements can be met in a syllabus.

  • District-designed AP Course Audit Activities. These articles describe how to create district-wide professional development activities centered around the AP Course Audit, including details on organizing syllabi-creation and review sessions with teachers.

  • Free archived online presentations on the AP Course Audit process: 1) a presentation with a walk-through of the AP Course Audit Web site demonstration (the submission feature of the audit), and;  2) an event that offered an overview of the AP Course Audit process and the resources available to help teachers prepare materials for submission.  These events have been archived and are available to education professionals for viewing at any time.   http://apcentral.collegeboard.com/courseaudit/resources

  • AP Course Audit Manual. The AP Course Audit Manual provides an overview of the audit, the review process and instructions for submitting materials. The curricular and resource requirements are also available in this publication.

  • AP Course Audit PowerPoint Presentation. This presentation, designed for both teachers and administrators, will help schools and districts inform their staffs about the purpose and processes of the course audit. This presentation includes notes that specifically target teacher and administrators audiences so that presenters will be equipped to respond to questions from either group.


The Submission & Review Process

The course audit review process is designed to ensure that teachers have multiple opportunities to demonstrate inclusion of the requirements in their syllabi. For instance, if, after the teacher submits his/her syllabus for review, a reviewer cannot determine that the syllabus explicitly fulfills or exceeds the course's requirements, that submission is routed to a Senior Reviewer for review. If the Senior Reviewer agrees that the syllabus does not clearly and explicitly demonstrate that each of the curricular requirements is addressed in the course, the Senior Reviewer will provide the AP Program with specific, objective rationale(s) explaining why. The rationale(s) will be included in an e-mail that is sent to the teacher, a copy of which is sent via mail to the principal. The teacher will then have the opportunity to revise and re-submit the syllabus based on the feedback received. If, after resubmitting a revised syllabus, the reviewers can still not make a determination about the course, a College Board representative will call the teacher to provide additional suggestions for how the syllabus could be revised. The teacher will have a third and final chance to revise and submit the syllabus. Only if after this third round of reviews the requirements are not clearly evidenced, will the course be considered not authorizable, and the teacher will be asked to consider submitting their course materials for the following school year. It is the College Board's intention to provide teacher with ample opportunity to demonstrate how their course meets the expectations college and universities have for AP courses. The AP Course Audit process is not designed to serve as a punitive experience, but rather a means to validate and confirm the remarkable job AP teachers are doing at providing rigorous, college-level coursework to their students.

The College Board is considering additional ways to communicate all of the important facets of the AP Course Audit to teachers in the field, and we will continue to inform consultants as new developments and communication venues are developed.  The CB hopes that this information serves to answer some of the questions about the audit.

Student Selection: Equity and Access
The Advanced Placement Program developed the following policy statement to assist schools in developing an open enrollment policy that reflects the College Board's commitment to expanding access to AP for all students:

The College Board and the Advanced Placement Program encourage teachers, AP Coordinators, and school administrators to make equitable access a guiding principle for their AP programs. The College Board is committed to the principle that all students deserve an opportunity to participate in rigorous and academically challenging courses and programs. All students who are willing to accept the challenge of a rigorous academic curriculum should be given consideration for admission to AP courses. The Board encourages the elimination of barriers that restrict access to AP courses for students from ethnic, racial, and socioeconomic groups that have been traditionally underrepresented in the AP Program. Schools should make every effort to ensure that their AP classes reflect the diversity of their student population.
