This summer, thousands of high school teachers and college professors will gather at the Kentucky International Convention Center to review and decide the fate of our nation’s high school students at the AP Reading. Educators travel to Louisville to score the College Board’s Advanced Placement English Language, English Literature and U.S. History exams.
Since 2007, the summer meeting has brought close to 4,000 educators yearly to the metro area for a three-week stay to grade student responses to the free-response questions on the AP Exams. The educators (also known as AP Readers) work from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. for seven consecutive days reviewing more than a million exams.
The College Board Advanced Placement Program gives high school students an opportunity to take college-level courses and exams and earn college credit or advanced placement. The AP Reading is organized by Educational Testing Service, a nonprofit organization that develops, administers and scores more than 50 million assessment tests annually in more than 180 countries, including the SAT college entrance exam, GRE graduate school entrance exam and various K-12 standardized assessment programs.
The convention center is one of four locations nationwide to host an AP Reading. The other locations are: the Volusia County Ocean Center in Daytona Beach the Duke Energy Convention Center in Cincinnati, Ohio and the Kansas City Convention Center in Kansas City, Mo.
The long-standing relationship with ETS generates a significant economic boost for the Louisville area and is one of the convention center’s largest conventions in terms of hotel room nights. The meeting produces an estimated economic impact of more than $8.6 million dollars annually.
