Each year, the AP Program, which is sponsored by the College Board, gives more than 1.5 million capable high school students an opportunity to take rigorous college-level courses and examinations. Based on their exam performance, successful students can receive credit and/or advanced placement when they enter college.
More than 2.9 million examinations from more than 30 AP Courses were evaluated by over 10,000 AP Readers from universities and high schools. Representing many of the finest academic institutions in the world, these educators come from the United States, Canada and abroad.
The AP Reading is a unique forum in which academic dialogue between high school and college educators is fostered and strongly encouraged.
â€œThe Reading draws upon the talents of some of the finest teachers and professors that the world has to offer,â€ said Trevor Packer, vice president of the Advanced Placement Program at the College Board. â€œIt fosters professionalism, allows for the exchange of ideas, and strengthens the commitment to students and to teaching. We are very grateful for the contributions of talented educators like Dr. Davis.â€
This press release was provided by ETS so that we could send it to our hometown papers and school papers. Since I am not going to be doing that, I thought I would post it here. It’s for grins and giggles.
