For the past two years, the College Board has released end-of-year review videos aimed at helping students prepare for the AP exam. These videos were called AP Daily: Live Review and are still available on YouTube and in AP Classroom. Each review session was around 45 minutes and included content tips, AP exam tips, and practice questions.
When students provided feedback for these videos, the message was crystal clear. They wanted shorter review sessions and more practice questions. So all new for 2023, the College Board will be releasing the new video series AP Daily: Practice Sessions.
What is AP Daily: Practice Sessions?
Here are the QuickNotes
Each video will be around 15 minutes, with a laser focus on practice multiple choice and free response questions.
All questions used in the videos are from previous AP Exams or College Board released materials.
There will be eight videos, with the first four being led by Stats Medic Luke Wilcox and the next four led by AP Stats legend Daren Starnes.
Sessions 1 - 4 will be released on YouTube and AP Classroom on April 17 and sessions 5 - 8 will be released on April 24.
Each session will have a downloadable pdf of the questions. These documents will become available on YouTube and AP Classroom as soon as the videos are released.
The intention is that students try these problems first before watching the videos.
How to Use AP Daily: Practice Sessions in Your Classroom
Option 1: Do the practice questions and videos in class.
Once the videos are published on April 17, there will also be a link to download a pdf of the questions. Make copies for students and give them class time to try the problems first. Then watch the videos as a whole class so that students can check their work.
Option 2: Assign the practice questions for homework. Watch the videos in class.
Print the pdf of the questions and give to students as a homework assignment. Watch the video for those questions in the first 15 minutes of class the next day.
Option 3: Have students do the practice questions and videos at home.
In this scenario, students have the option of printing the pdfs or they can pause the videos each time a new question is presented, try the problem on their own, then hit "play" to check their work.
