Wisconsin AP scores, participation climb in 2017

Wisconsin AP scores, participation climb in 2017”

At Danbury High, 618 students sat down for 1,078 exams.

The district's overall passing rate, 54 percent, is slightly below last year's all-time high of 55 percent, but an improvement from a 48 percent passing rate five years ago, according to the district.

Greenwich High School had the highest number of test takers in 2017 with 769 students who collectively took 2,012 exams.

"The AP experience is beneficial to students because it exposes them to college-level material and helps them develop the study skills that are needed to be successful in college", said Dr. Carey Wright, state superintendent of education.

Of South Carolina's 168 public high schools that took AP exams in 2017, Bluffton High tied with Greenville's Maudlin High for the 26th highest passing rate. My vision is to have all students take at least one AP level course or Early College course as part of their high school curriculum. At eight HIDOE high schools, 11 students qualified for the National AP Scholar Award by earning an average score of 4 or higher on a five-point scale on all AP Exams taken, and scores of 4 or higher on eight or more of these exams. "As schools continue to provide students with challenging learning opportunities, AP achievement in MS will continue to rise".

May River High, Beaufort High, Hilton Head Island High and Battery Creek High schools all fell below the statewide passage rate with respective scores of 55, 46, 39 and 20 percentage of exams scoring a three or above. But while 71.6 percent of students qualified for the subsidy past year, only 31.1 percent of students took an AP exam using the fee subsidy.

And at Bridgeport's Central High School, 205 students took 325 AP exams. The AP Capstone Diploma and AP Seminar and Research Certificate are reported to colleges and universities as AP Scholar Awards and appear in Scholar Roster reports. Of those 462 scored a 3 or better. Currently, Kalani, Mililani, Roosevelt, and Waiakea high schools are certified.

Testing may have a bad rap these days, but more and more high school students are taking and passing Advanced Placement Exams in the state and the nation. That's why the U.S. Department of Education provides MS with a grant that subsidizes the cost of AP exams for students from low-income families.
