5 AP grade. All comparisons of instructional schedules were found to differ from each other with the exception of fall and spring semester block schedules where there were no significant differences. Overall, results from Table 3 indicate that students completing a year-long AP Calculus course with extended sessions (61 90 minute sessions each day) obtained a higher score than students completing a year-long course with traditional length sessions (30 60 minute sessions each day). Both groups performed significantly better than students in semester block schedule instructional sessions. There were no significant differences between students completing the course in a fall or spring semester block. Finally, differences between the year-long ex tended session (61 90 minute classes) and semester (both fall and spring) courses had a small effect of approximately 0.3 of a standard deviation. These results can be illustrated in the following ordering for AP Examination grades: Year-long minutes/day>year-long minutes/day > Fall semester = Spring semester Overall, results from this study indicate students in AP Calculus AB: 1. earn higher grades in year-long courses; 2. earn higher grades in year-long courses that meet for extended or longer periods each day; and 3. earn similar grades in semester block courses in the fall or spring.

English Literature The results are less clear for AP English Literature than for other AP Examinations. The range between the lowest and highest mean adjusted scores was only No significant differences were found between fall and spring semester block courses, or between the year-long courses. 7 However, students in year-long extended period classes did significantly better than students in the fall semester block courses, while students in the traditional length year-long classes did significantly better than fall and spring semester block courses. None of the comparisons between course schedules had an effect size equal to 0.20, indicating no practical significance between schedules for AP English Literature. These results can be displayed as follows: Fall semester = Spring semester Year-long minutes/day = Year long minutes/day > Fall semester Year-long minutes/day > Spring semester Overall, results from this study indicate students in AP English Literature:

Other al Schedules Fifteen percent of all students completing the questions on block schedules indicated that they followed an instruction schedule other than the four types identified above. Because these students indicated an other schedule, their AP performance was not included in this study, yet their responses provide some perspective on instructional practices across AP courses. Table 7 shows that this other schedule often was the second most frequently selected, and this varied little by AP course. Of these students, 56 percent followed a full-year, alternating day schedule and 4 percent of students said the length of their classes varied. CONCLUSIONS The instructional schedule does affect student grades on the four AP Examinations in this study after they have been adjusted for group differences in student ability. The results from this study gen- 8

10 While these results are not uniform across the tests examined, the evidence in this study suggests that students who are taught in compressed schedules score lower on all four AP Examinations than those who receive year-long instruction. For courses on compressed schedules (fall or spring), there is some evidence that higher AP Examination grades may be obtained when testing immediately follows instruction. Finally, there is also some supporting evidence that students obtain higher AP grades when more time is devoted to instruction. REFERENCES Brookhart, S.M. (1993).
