(WQOW) - A new report shows Wisconsin high school students are outperforming much of the nation on advanced placement tests.
According to the College Board, more than 26 percent of all 2019 high school graduates in Wisconsin earned a passing grade on AP exams. That's roughly three points better than the national average, ranking 11th in the country for AP scores.
Wisconsin is also seeing more students take AP tests with nearly 72,000 participating last year. The Department of Public Instruction found those passing grades saved students $48 million in college credits.
