Day 1–AP Reading

Reading_Utah2016
This is the group of friendly chemists I have been working with since Day -3. We are in charge of scoring the Alternate exam. We are not allowed to discuss anything about this confidential exam outside of our reading room, so lunchtime conversations are pretty dull. I am in charge of one of the long questions. We will be joined today by 10 Readers. And so it begins.

AP Reading

Salt-Palace-Convention-Center
I am in Salt Lake City for the next 12 days or so.  We will be scoring the free response portion of the AP chemistry exams.  The work is done at the Salt Palace, a convention center huge enough to house nine different AP subject scoring teams at the same time.
