This test will save you AP* Government teachers hours of work! The product includes a 40 question multiple choice test on Policy (with an emphasis on economic policy), as well as multiple Free Response Question (FRQ) options for the unit. This test includes roughly 15 questions on the policy-making process, defense policy, environmental policy, and social welfare policy, and roughly 25 questions on economic policy, including topics such as: fiscal and monetary policy, taxation, mandatory and discretionary spending, Keynesian vs. Supply-side economics, etc. Since the AP* test tends to cover economic and social welfare policy more heavily than the other policy areas, this exam was made with that focus in mind. This is a great unit assessment or you can implement it as a review before the exam in May.

The multiple choice test is available in two formats- Exam View and PDF, so you can find one that fits your needs. All of the questions are originally developed by me, but they are inspired by course themes. Check out the preview to see examples. Questions offer "a-e" options and reflect the types of questions students will see on the actual exam, such as: Best Answer, EXCEPT, and roman numeral questions.

I have also included a document with several different released Free Response Question options. Due to copyright issues, I am unable to provide the text of the exact FRQs, but I have provided directions and links for several different free response questions that are relevant for this test. For each recommendation, I have provided the year the question was released, the number/parts to use, and the link to the PDF/site containing all questions and scoring guidelines. I have tried to make this as user friendly as possible.

Please read my full terms of use in the product preview and understand that your purchase comes with a license to use this test in your classroom ONLY. Please do NOT post or share this test online in any capacity, as this compromises the integrity of the assessment. For more details, please refer to my terms of use in the product and feel free to ask me any questions under "Product Q&A." Thank you!
