At my high school we are considering an incentive program to help try and raise AP scores...the concept is that if a student receives a 3 on their AP test there grade would be raised to a B (if it wasn't that or higher already), if the student receives a 4/5 their grade would be raised to an A (again, if it wasn't already there). The policy would not ever lower a grade due to an AP score, so it can only help kids not hurt them. It is thought that this would help motivate kids to study and prepare a little harder come test time...safeguards can be put in place to ensure that students don't blow off the years assignments and assessments and simply rely on trying to pass the test. (must complete 90% of assignments for policy to apply etc) Does anyone know of a policy similar to this and how it has worked? Or any creatvie incentive program other than weighted grades/paying for test? Any thoughts on whether this would be a good motivator for kids? Thanks for any feedback.
