New AP U.S. History exam - what is the College Board hiding?
AP U.S. History teachers who received the new sample history test must accept the following conditions set forth by the College Board:
"Exams may NOT be posted on school or personal websites, nor electronically redistributed for any reason. Further distribution of these materials outside of the secure College Board site disadvantages teachers who rely on uncirculated questions for classroom testing. Any additional distribution is in violation of the College Board's copyright policies and may result in the termination of Practice Exam access for your school as well as the removal of access to other online services such as the AP Teacher Community and Online Score Reports."
