DENVER (AP) – The College Board tracking student performance says more Colorado public school students are taking Advanced Placement exams that give them college credit for their work.
The number of Colorado graduates who took an Advanced Placement exam in high school increased from 18,400 in 2012 to 19,400 in 2013.
Colorado now ranks 10th in the nation for improving the percentage of graduates scoring a three or higher on the exams over the past decade that earn them credits.
