Kathie Shiba, Ph.D., professor of psychology at Maryville College, was selected to participate in the annual reading and scoring of the College Board’s Advanced Placement Examinations this June in psychology. The College Board’s Advanced Placement Program (AP) gives more than 1.8 million capable high school students an opportunity to take rigorous college-level courses and examinations. Based on their exam performance, successful students can receive credit and/or advanced placement when they enter college.
This year, more than 3.2 million examinations from more than 30 AP courses were evaluated by more than 10,000 AP Readers from universities and high schools. Representing many of the finest academic institutions in the world, AP Readers are made up of professional educators from the United States, Canada and abroad. The AP Reading is a unique forum in which an academic dialogue between high school and college educators is fostered and strongly encouraged.
