Nevada Schools AP Exam Participation Shows Improvement
The percentage of Nevada high school students taking advanced placement exams has improved over the last decade but still falls below the national average.
A report released Tuesday by the College Board shows 16.9 percent of Nevada's class of 2013 scored a three or higher on an AP exam during high school. A score of three, four or five is typically accepted by colleges for credit and placement.
While that's below the national average of 20.1 percent, it's a big improvement in Nevada since 2003, when only 10.3 percent of students taking the exam posted those results.
