The AP Calculus Reading goes for 7 consecutive days, with leaders working as many as 5 days on site prior to the reading.
It is impossible to describe what I do at the reading, but it is really easy to answer questions about what is and what is not in my purview (especially because I have answered these questions at least 100 times each).
Q: Do you write the problem?
Q: Do you pick which problem you get to be the QL for?
Q: Do you write the answer key?
Q: Do you make the point allocation?
Q: Do you get to make changes to the scoring standard?
Q: When you finish your briefing, are you finished with your work for the week?
Q: Do your students all make fives?
Q: Do you work for the College Board year round?
Q: Do you teach with a light saber normally?
Q: Yoda ears?
When I have some time, I will work on a post which describes what readers, table leaders and question leaders do at an AP Calculus Reading.
Until then… I have some reports to finish.

As a student of this amazing teacher, I can verify that the answers to the last three questions are 100% correct. (Look at my math skills go!)
Thank you KB!
As a friend of this amazing human being, I totally agree with you Katiedid03
