Every year College Board releases summary reports outlining student and school participation and performance data on a national and state-by-state basis for that year’s AP Exams.
Reports are archived since 1997 and contain information about participation in the AP Program, performance on individual exams including score distributions by subject, changes in exam volume, and much more.
Beginning with the 2002 exam administration, the amount of data and type of reports published increased considerably, providing even greater insight into the students and schools that participate in the AP Program.
