WCPSS Advanced Placement (AP) Test Results, 2009-10. E&R Report No. 10.29
McMillen, Brad
Wake County Public School System
Analysis of WCPSS' 2009-10 AP reports from the College Board reveal that the number and proportion of WCPSS students taking AP courses and exams continues to grow. Between 1996-97 and 2009-10, the number of students enrolled in WCPSS grew by approximately 63% and the number taking AP exams increased by 238% with a corresponding increase in exams taken (269%). However, with the increases, the percentage of exams with scores of 3 or higher (76.4%) has declined slightly over the past decade, a pattern consistent with both state and national trends. Exams with the largest number of test-takers in WCPSS in 2009-10 were Environmental Science, English Language/Composition, Psychology, and U.S. History.
