4/1/2015 - Numbers Of WI Students In Advanced Classes Continues To Rise - Click here to print this information

The numbers of Wisconsin high school students who take Advanced Placement exams keeps growing. State education officials say 34-percent of last spring's graduating seniors took at least one A-P test -- up from 19-percent a decade before. Twenty-four percent of those taking the exams scored at least a three, on a scale of one-to-five. That's almost twice the 13-percent who scored three-or-higher back in 2004 -- high enough for those students to get college credits before they step foot on a campus. State Superintendent Tony Evers says Wisconsin is heading in a good direction with continued growth in the Advanced Placement programs with stronger performance. However, the state's participation rate is still about two-percentage points below the national average of 35-point-seven.
