In order to help students succeed in Advanced Placement (AP) courses, instructional materials must address the knowledge and skills articulated in the new AP course frameworks. To that end, the College Board partnered with Learning List™ to provide educators with independent, professional reviews of AP materials.
As part of the review process, Learning List verifies a material’s alignment to each of the Learning Objectives (LO), Essential Knowledge statements (EKs) and Skills/Practices in the relevant course framework. The alignment reports identify the “citations” (e.g., pages, lessons, videos) listed in the publisher’s correlation that Learning List verified to be aligned and not aligned to each LO, EK and Skill/Practice for the course.
The College Board used these reviews to decide which materials to include on the 2016 and 2017 Example Textbook Lists for each of these courses.
