The Education Outreach and Partnerships office is a member/partner of the Wisconsin Advanced Placement Advisory Council. Advanced Placement is a high school academic program with courses in more than 30 subjects that culminate with college-level assessments. Exams are graded on a scale of one to five, with a score of three or higher considered successful and eligible for credit or advanced standing at most colleges and universities. According to College Board, earning a score of three, or higher, on an AP exam is a good predictor of a student’s ability to succeed in college academic studies and graduate.
The Wisconsin Advanced Placement Advisory Council (WAPAC) which is comprised of PK-16 educational practitioners wishes to promote advanced placement opportunities for Wisconsin youth.
If you are an AP educator, consider UW-Madison's Advanced Placement Summer Institute 2013
, a week-long program designed to teach best practices for AP instruction.
