Department Hosts AP® Statistics Mock Exam

AP Statistics Mock Exam VolunteersOn April 27, the Department of Statistics hosted its annual AP® Statistics Mock Exam. The event served two main purposes; to help high school teachers learn how AP® Statistics Exams are scored and to prepare high school students for the actual AP® Statistics Exam.

The event was organized by Statistics faculty member Laura Ziegler. Many faculty members provided help to make the event a success including Anna Peterson (ISU), Wesley Cox (ISU), and Barb Barnet (AP® Statistics Chief Reader and ISU alum). Assistance also came from Iowa State undergraduate students Viridiana Garcia and Ryan Nagao and graduate student Nathan Friedrichsen.

High school students and teachers came from Ankeny Centennial High School, Norwalk Community High School, Decorah High School, Ames High School, and Johnston High School. The students and teachers were very positive about their experience.


Since I am the only AP Statistics teacher in my district, I appreciate any opportunity to collaborate with fellow Stats instructors from across the state. I always learn something new as we discuss rubrics and share stories about how we teach the statistics content in our classes.

I found the coversations with others most beneficial. 


I felt the experience made me feel more confident when it came to the actual exam. It is a great opportunity that I would recommend to any AP Stats student. - Jenna Lemke

I felt that I got the experience I needed as someone who had never taken an AP exam, and it helped relieve my anxiety. - Callum Nimrod

The test was representative of the real AP exam and helped with time management that better prepared me for the exam. - Anonymous

We look forward to hosting another AP® Statistics Mock Exam in 2025!
