Thousands in Louisville to grade AP exams

Thousands of educators are in Louisville this week grading more than a million essays completed by high school students across the country.

The grading is being done on Advanced Placement tests given in May by the New York City-based College Board, a nonprofit group that manages and administers various standardized tests.

The College Board selected Louisville and the Kentucky International Convention Center as its largest grading site last August. ...The graders have used all the available 300,000 square feet of space at the convention center.
