Local Teacher To Score AP Exams

SCOTCH PLAINS—Patricia Mascolino, a member of the Science Department at Union Catholic High School, was selected to participate in the annual reading and scoring of the College Board’s AP Examinations being held in Lincoln, Neb. this June.

Each year, the AP Program, sponsored by the College Board, gives more than one million capable high school students an opportunity to take rigorous college-level courses and examinations and, based on their exam performance, to receive credit and/ or advanced placement when they enter college.

More than 2.7 million examinations from 37 AP courses were evaluated by over 10,000 AP readers from universities and high schools. Representing many of the finest academic institutions in the world, these men and women are some of the best high school and college educators in the United States, Canada and abroad.

The AP reading is a unique forum in which academic dialogue between secondary school and college educators is fostered and strongly encouraged.

“The reading draws upon the talents of some of the finest teachers and professors that the world has to offer,” said Trevor Packer, vice president of the Advanced Placement Program at the College Board.

“It fosters professionalism, allows for the exchange of ideas, and strengthens the commitment to students and to teaching. We are very grateful for the contributions of talented educators like Patricia Mascolino.”
