A Study of Advanced Placement English in the Memphis City School System, Memphis, Tennessee.
Middleton, Doris Marie
The purpose of this study was to determine whether students enrolled in Advanced Placement (AP) English in the senior year in the Memphis (Tennessee) City School System entered college immediately on graduation in greater proportions than students who were enrolled in other senior English courses. It was concluded that the number of students enrolled in AP courses remained relatively constant over a period of years, AP English students in the Memphis Schools resembled other students cited in the literature on such courses; and the probability that a student enrolled in an AP English course compared to a student enrolled in a regular senior class would request a transcript to be sent to a college was significant at a very high level of confidence. Recommendations based on the results of the study are included. (Author/RB)
