LI high school students in college-level courses

LI students qualified for college credit in 53,971 exams administered by Advanced Placement and International Baccalaureate programs this spring.

Long Island high school seniors qualified for college credit in 54,123 exams administered by the Advanced Placement and International Baccalaureate programs in the spring of 2016. That works out to more than 1.5 successful exams for every high school senior on the Island. Here are district-by-district figures on the nearly 80,000 exams taken, the number who achieved a successful score and the ratio of such tests to the number of students in each district's senior year. A ratio of 1.00, for example, would mean that the number of successful exams in a district matched the number of high-school seniors The ratio is illustrated in the bar charts below and in the map that appears below that. There is a separate ratio for the number of tests taken. This database was posted on Oct. 28, 2016.
