If you give your students the 2009 exam for practice, you
may want to analyze the results to nd overall strengths and
weaknesses in their understanding of AP Computer Science
A. e following diagnostic worksheet will help you do this.
You are permitted to photocopy and distribute it to your
students for completion.
1. In each section, students should insert a check mark for
each correct answer.
2. Add together the total number of correct answers for
each section.
3. To compare the students number of correct answers for
each section with the average number correct for that
section, copy the number of correct answers to the
Number Correct table at the end of the Diagnostic
Guide.
In addition, under each item the percent of AP students
who answered correctly is shown, so students can analyze
their performance on individual items. is information
will be helpful in deciding how students should plan
their study time. Please note that one item may appear in
several dierent categories, as questions can cross over
dierent topics.
