AP TESTING: Iowa Scores Falling Behind

Generic Education

Iowa’s students are scoring behind students in other states on Advanced Placement tests.

According to the College Board Report, about 11-percent of Iowa’s high school seniors scored a three or higher on an AP exam last year. Those are the scores colleges and universities accept for credit.

The national average is 20-percent of seniors scoring three or higher.

However, more Iowa students are now taking the exam than ever before. Last year 5,700 students took the exam. Just over 3,500 got a three or better.
