Va. stu­dents do well on AP tests

Richmond Times-Dispatch - - LOCAL PERSPECTIVES -

RICH­MOND — Vir­ginia stu­dents fared bet­ter than the na­tional av­er­age on last year’s Ad­vanced Place­ment tests.

Data re­leased by the Col­lege Board last week show 29 per­cent of grad­u­at­ing se­niors in the state last year earned a three or higher on at least one AP test. The na­tional av­er­age is 24 per­cent.

Vir­ginia is eighth in the U.S. in its AP per­for­mance, which went un­changed com­pared to 2017. The state’s per­for­mance has im­proved 6 per­cent­age points in the past 10 years.
