More Wisconsin high school students taking AP exams; doing well
Growing numbers of Wisconsin high school students are taking Advanced Placement exams, and doing well.
The College Board said 24 percent of last year's public school graduates in the Badger State took the rigorous AP exams.
That's up from 17 percent six years ago.
About 16.5 percent of those who took the tests scored 3 or higher on a scale of 5. That's up from 12 percent in 2002.
An achievement gap remains between white and black students.
