I just got my online class results back today for www.hscompsci.com
. My student's average score was a 4.5 last year, but it's a 4.0 now. Interesting too because I spent more time on algorithms than I did last year, and the MC really focused on array looping.
I have to take that average with a grain of salt because it could be just my students, but my hypothesis is that the curve is not as generous as it was last year.
All teachers will know more in the next couple of weeks as the overall averages for APCS will be released.
There was no doubt that the multiple choice section was much more difficult than last years, so will be interesting to see the scoring breakdowns. I'll post back when I get these.
