|N. Parker, Laura Ziegler, Robin Lock (of St. Lawrence University), and Elizabeth Fry at the Advanced Placement Statistics Reading in Kansas City, Missouri|
Laura was a table leader, and N. was an "acorn"—the affectionate name given to first-time readers. AP Statistics gets bigger and bigger every year, with about 630 readers grading nearly 171,000 exams! In fact, this year there were enough exams that the AP readers conquered the "million question challenge": by grading more than a million responses.
We look forward to the day when enough students are taking AP Statistics that we face a two million question challenge!
