Local Educator Selected to Participate in Advanced Placement Program Reading

Bethlehem, Pa., June 18, 2009—Dana S. Dunn, professor of psychology at Moravian College, was selected to participate in the annual Reading and Scoring of the College Board’s AP Examination in Advanced Placement Psychology.

Each year the AP Program, sponsored by the College Board, gives more than one million capable high school students an opportunity to take rigorous college-level courses and examinations and, based on their exam performance, to receive credit and/or advanced placement when they enter college.

Approximately 2.7 million examinations in 37 AP Courses were evaluated by over 10,000 AP Readers from universities and high schools. Representing many of the finest academic institutions in the world, these men and women are some of the best high school and college educators in the United States, Canada, and abroad.

The AP Reading is a unique forum in which academic dialogue between secondary school and college educators is fostered and strongly encouraged. “The Reading draws upon the talents of some of the finest teachers and professors the world has to offer,” said Trevor Packer, executive director 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 Dana S. Dunn.”

Moravian College is a private, coeducational, selective liberal arts college located in Bethlehem, Pennsylvania. Tracing its founding to 1742, it is recognized as America's sixth-oldest college. Visit the Web site at www.moravian.edu.
