Gibbens Participates in 2014 AP Test Reading


Jerry Gibbens, chair of the English department at Williams Baptist College, has been selected by the College Board for the annual reading and scoring of its Advanced Placement Examinations.  Gibbens is evaluating tests in English literature.

The College Board’s Advanced Placement Program (AP) gives more than 1.8 million high school students an opportunity to take college-level courses and examinations.  Students who are successful at the exams can receive credit and/or advanced placement when they enter college.

AP readers are made up of professional educators from the United States, Canada and abroad.  The College Board terms the AP Reading as a unique forum in which an academic dialogue between high 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, senior 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 Professor Gibbens.”
