Title:The 4th annual AP report to the nation
Organization:College Board
Short Description:This Report uses a combination of state, national, and AP Program data to provide each U.S. state with context it can use to celebrate its successes, understand its unique challenges, and set meaningful and data-driven goals to prepare more students for success in college.
Annotation:More than ever before, educators across the United States are enabling a wider and more ethnically diverse proportion of students to achieve success in AP. Significant inequities, however, which jeopardize traditionally underserved students’ chances at college success, remain. This Report uses a combination of state, national, and AP Program data to provide each U.S. state with context it can use to celebrate its successes, understand its unique challenges, and set meaningful and data-driven goals to prepare more students for success in college.
