Quoted in The 6th Annual AP Report to the Nation |
15.9 percent of the public school graduating class of 2009 had access to an AP experience that resulted in a score of 3 or higher — the score predictive of college success. This represents a 3.2 percent increase over the graduating class of 2004. Eighteen states equaled or exceeded the national percentage of 15.9 percent.
Lower than I would expect. I thought the average amount of students receiving 5's was already ~15%, with fluctuation from year to year of course. And 15.9% accounts for any
student ever having received a 3+ even if just once and he received 1's on the rest of his exams.
