Nevada Improves in Advanced Placement Test Takers

Associated Press (02/11/14) Rindels, Michelle

A new report by The College Board shows that 16.9 percent of Nevada students from the Class of 2013 scored a 3 or higher on an Advanced Placement exam, up from 10.3 percent in 2003. Over the same period, the number of Nevada students taking AP exams rose from 2,600, or 16 percent of graduating students, to more than 7,000, or nearly 32 percent. "Today I applaud educators who have worked hard to bring the rigorous and relevant instruction of AP to more students in Nevada than ever before," said Nevada Superintendent of Public Instruction Dale Erquiaga. "All students who are academically ready for the rigor of an AP course should have access to rigorous coursework, regardless of their socioeconomic, geographic, or racial/ethnic background. I encourage continued efforts across the state to increase access to AP courses for all Nevada students."
