Is this common in high schools in the United States? (Description)Posted by: Foxian
Today I took my first math test here and it was fully multiple choice, so now I'm wondering, is it common for math test in high schools in the United States to be fully multiple choice? The class was AP Calculus BC which is supposed to be college level from what I'm told but the test seemed way too easy.
At least in Texas, many of the districts use Scranton and major tests will generally be multiple choice. This is also popular in schools with a large number of students in which tests will be graded by machine.
Now I;m actually from Canada, but the education system is fairly similar to the US in my province. Usually a quarter of the marks depend on Numerical Response or Long answer.
Its not common in math test (or at least not the ones Im familiar with). Plus as a current college student, I can tell you that AP classes in high school are different from actual classes in College.
