2016 FRQs

Here's my estimate of points on these questions.

 I usually overestimate the number of points, but it's difficult to know what the rubric will demand for an explanation or whether partial answers will earn partial credit.

Points for FRQs
  1. 3 points; 1 definition, 1 example, 1 consequence
  2. 3 points: 1 cause, 2 reasons
  3. 3 or 4 points; 1 example of correlation; 1 example of causal relationship; 1 or 2 points for explanation
  4. 3 points; 2 examples of domestic factors; 1 example of international factor
  5. 3 or 4 points; 2 descriptions; 1 or 2 points for explanation
  6. 6−9 points; 3 points for descriptions; 3-6 points for explanations
  7. 7-10 points; 4 points for descriptions; 3-6 points for explanations
  8. 6-7 points; 5 points for descriptions; 1-2 points for explanations
