Stark's Advanced Placement Participation and Success Rates Continue to Increase

Nationally, high school students completed 4,704,980[1] Advanced Placement (AP) tests in the spring of 2016 in the hopes of scoring a three or above - the level at which most colleges will grant credit. Of all the tests completed by 9th - 12th graders, 58% met this goal[2]

Stark County students took 4,048 tests and scored three or above on more than 60% of those exams. The results underscore the continued growth of AP in the county. At the same time as enrollment in college credit plus courses increased, last year saw nearly 500 additional students participating in AP compared to 2010.

Unlike College Credit Plus where college credit is awarded in high school after successful course completion, AP credit is granted upon enrollment at participating colleges and universities. The amount of credit granted varies by institution based on the student's test subject and whether they scored a three, four, or five. For instance, a score of three in French Language could result in between six and ten semester hours at various institutions. The Ohio Department of Higher Education has published  
Advanced Placement Course Credit Alignment Recommendations.[3]
