This test bank includes five original stimulus-sets of multiple-choice questions, which are written in the new style which will be used on the 2015 AP US History test. Each stimulus set includes a short primary- or secondary- source excerpt, and 2-5 questions over the excerpt. The bank includes a total of 20 questions.
The questions partially cover AP US History Period 7 (1890-1945) and are related to Imperialism and the Progressive Era. They are aligned to the revised College Board Curriculum Framework
and to the nine historical thinking skills
emphasized on the revised AP test. Some of the questions require knowledge of illustrative examples from the Curriculum Framework, while others require knowledge only of the themes from the Framework.
Stimuli for the questions in the bank include excerpts from:
*Alfred Thayer Mahan, the Influence of Sea Power Upon History
*John Hay, first Open Door note
*Lincoln Steffens, the Shame of the Cities
*Ida Tarbell, the History of the Standard Oil Company
*Walter Rauschenbusch, Christianity and the Social Crisis
