After swapping responses to the AP review problems, see the scoring guidelines here:

For each, read over the sample solution, then look at the scoring guidelines, scoring each section of the response as an E, P, or I. At the end, convert the E/P/I breakdown to a numerical score (out of 4). Give the scored document back to its owner.
