Abstract

The purpose of this study was to investigate the efficacy of two instructional approaches, practice examinations and beyond-school-day tutoring, in improving Advanced Placement (AP) examination scores in AP U.S. History and AP World History in one urban Florida high school. AP U.S. History and AP World History examination scores of students who did and who did not participate in AP practice examination and AP beyond-school-day tutoring were analyzed to determine if the two instructional approaches to improving student examination performance were effective. Because the instructional approaches were implemented in one school within the school district of study, a purposive sample was used. Data collected included practice examination participation data, beyond-school-day tutoring attendance data, and AP U.S. History and AP World History examination scores for students enrolled in AP U.S. History and AP World History at the school of study (FHS) and the matched high school (MHS).
