Some of you will begin to administer Interim Assessments. We have created a few documents to help your teachers.
1- How to administer Interim Assessments
2- How to look up Interim Assessment scores in ETS
3- How to Create Reporting Rosters (Must be completed so that teachers can see data in ETS)
Please note that we will load the scores into AWARE on Thursdays. The benefit of teachers going into ETS is to see the test questions and answer choices.

AP Potential Rosters ( Pool of Students) - Have been generated on CB website and place in your campus secure folder. Things to note about these rosters as Counselors,/Administrators review these names:
- A pool includes all students who have the minimum exam score associated with earning an AP exam score of 3,4,or 5 using a set pool percentage.
- The recommended pool level is 60% which is what was used to pull these rosters, if you would like them re-pulled using a different percentage please notify firstname.lastname@example.org and we will be happy to take care of this.
- Since our pool was set a 60%, these reports reflect students whose probability of receiving an AP exam score of 3,4, or 5 is anywhere between a 60%-100%.
