Open Responses and Investigative Tasks


Half of the AP exam in May is composed of 5 Open Response questions and 1 Investigative Task question. The open response questions will combine skills covered throughout the course in new and interesting ways. The Investigative Task is an open response question reserved for AP Statistics. This question requires you to think outside the box and APPLY your statistical skills and understanding to a brand new situation that I as a teacher could never anticipate. This IT is worth 25% of the entire OR section of the exam so it is extremely important to your overall score.

To help you be successful on OR and IT, we will complete one of each in every unit we cover. These assignments can be found here along with due dates.
