AP Score 3 Analysis
Students taking an AP exam and earning a score of 3 are evaluated for course success in the Purdue course which only accepted a score of 4 or 5. An AP score of 3 was not accepted and therefore the student was required to register and complete the associated AP directed course.The analysis showed a predominant number of students who score a 3 on the AP exam earn As and Bs in the associated AP directed course. Especially in BIOL 11000, CHM 11500 & 11600 and ENGL 10600, over 80% of the students earn an A or B grade.
