AP TESTING: Iowa Scores Falling Behind
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.
