The 7th Annual AP[R] Report to the Nation
College Board
This report shows how well educators across the United States have increased access to the types of rich academic experiences that prepare students for success in college. By combining national, state and AP (Advanced Placement) data, this report provides educators and policymakers with information they can use to celebrate their successes, understand their unique challenges and set meaningful goals to increase opportunity for all students. It's important to note that while AP Exams are valid measures of students' content mastery of college-level studies in specific academic disciplines, AP results should never be used as the sole measure for gauging educational excellence and equity. Because a central source of demographic data for nonpublic schools is not available for all states, this report represents "public" school students only. References to the total number of high school graduates represent projections supplied in "Knocking at the College Door" (2008), Western Interstate Commission for Higher Education. Additionally, this report looks at students' entire experience with AP--tracking exams taken by seniors throughout their high school career--as opposed to reporting exam results from a particular calendar year. Raw Numbers for Figures 2, 3 and 5 are appended. (Contains 12 figures and 12 endnotes.) [For "The 6th Annual AP[R] Report to the Nation," see ED529282.]
