LAUSD Educator Selected to Evaluate AP Exams

LOS ANGELES (July 6, 2012) – Carolynn S. Middleton, who chairs the English Department at Dorsey High School in the Los Angeles Unified School District, has been chosen to evaluate exams for some of the nation’s highest-achieving students.

Middleton will help score part of the Advanced Placement tests in English Language and Composition. Such exams, overseen by the College Board, give students a chance to earn college credit, advanced placement or both, while still in high school.

She was an AP reader at a forum in the U.S., which drew high school and college educators worldwide, the board said.

“The Reading draws upon the talents of some of the finest teachers and professors that the world has to offer,” said Trevor Packer, Senior Vice President, AP and College Readiness at the board. “It fosters professionalism, allows for the exchange of ideas, and strengthens the commitment to students and to teaching.”

He added, “We are very grateful for the contributions of talented educators like Carolynn Middleton.”

Last year, more than 11,000 teachers and faculty members evaluated more than 3.4 million exams. The board administers the Advanced Placement program containing courses in 34 subjects, each ending with a rigorous exam.
