Chalk Talk: Advanced Placement Scoring at a Glance
Advanced Placement courses are offered at most high schools with hundreds of thousands of students enrolling to help get a jumpstart on college curriculum and dreams. Colleges and universities view AP coursework as the superior choice because of the increased rigor found in these advanced placement classes. By scoring successfully on the AP exam, you can save on college expenses by earning college credit and skipping introductory classes. AP exams are scored 1-5 with 1 being the lowest and 5 being extremely well qualified. Qualified means that the student has proven himself or herself capable of introductory level college work. Many college and universities grant credit for scores of 3, 4, or 5. There is a multiple-choice section that is scored by the computer and a free-response section that is scored by college professors and experienced AP teachers. The total scores from both sections combine together to form a composite score that is then translated into the 5-point scale. To learn more about Advanced Placement courses, talk to your guidance counselor and AP teachers at your school.
