AP PHYSICS B 2005 SCORING GUIDELINES (Form B) General Notes About 2005 AP Physics Scoring Guidelines 1. The solutions contain the most common method(s) of solving the free-response questions and the allocation of points for these solutions. Other methods of solution also receive appropriate credit for correct work. 2. Generally, double penalty for errors is avoided. For example, if an incorrect answer to part (a) is correctly substituted into an otherwise correct solution to part (b), full credit will usually be awarded. One exception to this may be cases when the numerical answer to a later part should be easily recognized as wrong, e.g., a speed faster than the speed of light in vacuum. 3. Implicit statements of concepts normally receive credit. For example, if use of the equation expressing a particular concept is worth one point, and a students solution contains the application of that equation to the problem but the student does not write the basic equation, the point is still awarded....
