College Board, Slides presented at the Advanced Placement Annual Conference (APAC) (Lake Buena Vista, FL, Jul 20, 2012)
In February 2012, the College Board published The 8th Annual AP Report to the Nation. This session provides a deeper dive into key information for the United States with an emphasis on Florida, and participants hear how one school in Florida utilizes AP Potential™ to help build their AP Program. Participants also learn about AP participation and performance in the STEM field. Analyses by race/ethnicity is provided. Participants also gain a clear understanding of common questions centered around the growing Hispanic/Latino population in AP. The goal of this session is to provide participants with the knowledge of how the AP population has changed over the last 10 years. At the end of this session, administrators, counselors and other school personnel are better able to help identify students not currently being served by AP and understand how the available data can assist in building their AP program.
