Prepsters Scoring Higher On AP Tests

More Idaho high school students are taking Advanced Placement exams and scoring high enough to earn college credit, the College Board and the state Department of Education announced today. In 2012, 18.4 percent of Idaho’s public high school graduates had taken at least one AP exam, up from 15.3 percent in 2007 and 11.3 percent in 2002. For the same 2012 graduating class, 12.3 percent had scored a 3 or higher on at least one AP exam, qualifying for college credit; the comparable figure in 2007 was 9.8 percent and in 2002, 7.3 percent/Betsy Russell, Eye on Boise.

Question: Are Idaho high schoolers getting smarter? Or are they better at taking tests?
