Va. students do well on AP tests
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.
