(New York, NY—June 26, 2014) The College Board has selected Dr. Arun Srivastava to participate in the Annual AP® Reading for the AP® Biology Exam, announced Dr. Joseph Giammarella, Principal of High Tech High School.
Each June, AP® teachers and college faculty members from around the world gather in the United States to evaluate and score the free-response sections of the AP® Exams. During June 2014 scoring sessions, more than 12,500 AP® readers will evaluate approximately 4.2 million AP® Exams. AP® Readers represent many of the world’s leading academic institutions. A unique forum, the AP® Reading both fosters and encourages academic dialogue between educators.
“The Reading draws upon the talents of some of the finest teachers and professors that the world has to offer,” says Trevor Packer, Senior Vice-President, AP® and Instruction at the College Board. “It allows for exchanges of ideas and strengthens the commitment to students and to teaching. We’re grateful for the contributions of talented educators like Dr. Srivastava of High Tech High School.”
The Advanced Placement Program® (AP®) enables willing, academically prepared students to pursue college-level studies, with the opportunity to earn college credit, advanced placement, or both while still in high school. Through AP® courses in 34 subjects, each culminating in a rigorous exam, students learn to analyze complex problems, construct solid arguments, and see many sides of an issue, skills that prepare them for college and beyond. Research indicates that students who score a 3 or higher on the Exams typically experience greater academic success in college and more likely earn a college degree than non-AP® students.
