As a way to review for the AP Stats exam, I have my students do a series of power quizzes* (5 multiple choice questions) in the weeks leading up the exam date (either individually or in groups). This is common practice in my department. A colleague of mine also does a final power quiz the day before the AP exam. I loved the idea so much that I decided to use this inspiration to come up with my own final power quiz for my AP Stats students.
