Analyzing Your Students’ Performance on the Multiple-Choice Section
If you give your students the 2007 exam for practice, you may want to analyze the results to find overall strengths and weaknesses in their understanding of AP World History. The following diagnostic worksheet will help you do this. You are permitted to photocopy and distribute it to your students for completion. 1. In each category, students should insert a check mark for each correct answer. 2. Add together the total number of correct answers for each category.

3. To compare the student’s number of correct answers for each category with the average number correct for that section, copy the number of correct answers to the “Number Correct” table at the end of the Diagnostic Guide. In addition, under each item, the percent of AP students who answered correctly is shown, so students can analyze their performance on individual items. This information will be helpful in deciding how students should plan their study time. Please note that one item may appear in several different categories, as questions can cross over different topics.
