The 8th Annual AP[R] Report to the Nation
College Board
In classrooms around the country, AP (Advanced Placement) teachers are preparing students for tomorrow by teaching them how to think and learn today. AP students learn to construct solid arguments, test theories, and see many sides of an issue--the kind of thinking that solves tough problems both in and outside the classroom, in college and beyond. AP Coordinators, counselors, principals, and district officials support AP teachers by providing professional development opportunities and other crucial resources. They offer a broad range of AP courses and exams so that motivated students can develop their passions and talents--whether they're interested in art, history, languages, literature, math, or science. At colleges and universities, the collaboration continues. College faculty review syllabi, develop AP course and exam content, score exams, and perform research to ensure that the exams assess a college level of achievement. Admission officials recognize the achievement of AP students, who demonstrate through successful exam scores that they are ready for the challenge of higher education and can, in turn, contribute new thoughts and ideas to the communities at their colleges and universities. In this report, readers will hear from some of the people who make this collaboration successful and who have demonstrated a commitment to both equity and excellence in the classroom. Raw numbers for Figures 2 and 3 are appended. (Contains 13 tables and 13 endnotes.) [For "The 7th Annual AP[R] Report to the Nation," see ED529286.]
