McGraw-Hill Education today announced the launch of McGraw-Hill SCOREboard, its AP exam preparation tool built on adaptive technology.

Built using official AP guidelines produced by the College Board, the solution includes a personalized learning plan and comprehensive student and teacher reports. Through adaptive questioning, SCOREboard assesses student understanding and provides detailed, immediate feedback about students’ areas of weakness. The personalized learning plan provides each student—after completing a diagnostic test—recommendations on AP topics that the student still needs to master. Four complete, timed practice exams for each course provide practical AP test-taking experience. Like the diagnostic test, these auto-graded exams give immediate feedback and include detailed scoring rubrics.

The program is available to schools via subscription and can also be purchased directly by students and parents at the price of $20.00 per course. SCOREboard is currently available for use in eight AP courses:

  • AP Biology
  • AP Chemistry
  • AP Economics
  • AP Environmental Science
  • AP Psychology
  • AP United States Government and Politics
  • AP United States History
  • AP World History

SCOREboard, currently available for use on PC and Mac, will be available for iOS devices by Fall 2013. For more information, visit:http://scoreboard.mcgraw-hill.com/
