Just curious — how does any school have more than 100% of its enrollment tested for a given exam? Are home schooled students allowed to participate?

Have only begun to look at these, and this was the first curiosity I saw...just wondering.

Thanks, Ms. Abell!

It's either a typo OR students who were not enrolled in the course took the exam. Taking an AP course is not a prerequisite for taking an AP exam.

Given that it occurs several times, I doubt the percentages are typographical errors.

"Taking an AP course is not a prerequisite for taking an AP exam."

I understand that -- but then the designation would be inaccurate, would it not? They would not be students enrolled in the course, and should not, then, be included in that percentage.

Another problem is if you click on Westlake you get Stone's results

Anonyomous is correct...the higher percentage is due to the fact that some students didn't take the course but took the test. I agree, they shouldn't have been included in the percentage. It's like extra stuffing :)
Also, the Westlake link is fixed now. Sorry, my faultg.

Including them generally has a negative impact on scores. As a rule very few students who take an AP exam without having taken the course score 3 or higher.

But for the staffers just "bean counting" and not interestedd in scores...it benefits :)

OMG!No wonder your boss never wanted to release those scores. What is really being taught in the highschools nowdays? Or is it something in the water over there? My neice gpt a waiver for classes at the college instead of AP classes. She got college credit for her classes cuz she passed the classes. looks as thou most of your kids dont get credit. Hope those average scores improve by the time my kid (middle school now) gets into highschool. We put a contract on a house in charles county now im beginning to wonder if we did the right thing. Looks like some teachers need a report card to me since the average grade in all of the classes is failing--below 3. Did these kids fail or did the teacher fail the kids? Ill be sure to keep an eye on this trend if they ever have the nerve to publish the scores again. Thanks for posting it. Joe
