Why consider becoming an AP Reader? Our 2023 AP Reader survey shows:
- The AP Reading experience leads to positive changes in the classroom ― 98% of high school AP teachers and college faculty who have participated in more than one AP Reading say that their participation has had a positive impact on their teaching. AP Readers enjoy the experience ― 97% of AP Readers say they had a positive experience. AP teachers and college faculty enjoy working together and exchanging ideas and experiences.
Additionally, AP Readers can:
- Earn Compensation ― Readers are paid for hours spent training and scoring. Earn professional development hours and Continuing Education Units (CEUs) ― Readers can earn CEUs based on hours worked. Score student responses at a Reading site or score responses from home – Readers who score from home can work flexible hours during the Reading week. Gain exposure to a broad set of student responses ― You will gain valuable insight into the quality and depth of student responses from a range of AP Exam takers, instead of being limited to student work from a single class or single school.
Depending on the AP Reader needs for each subject, we may select you to serve as an AP Reader in the first year that you apply, or you may be considered for future AP Readings.
