OKLAHOMA CITY (AP) - Oklahoma students are showing improvement in their scores on Advanced Placement exams.

The College Board reports that 4,111 of Oklahoma’s 37,260 graduates in 2013 - 11 percent - scored a 3, 4 or 5. A score of 3 or higher is general accepted for college credit. The College Board’s report says 8,228 Oklahoma students took an AP exam during high school.

The exams cover various subjects in math and science; English, history and social science; and arts and world languages.

The 11 percent is up from 10.6 percent in 2012 and is a 2.9 percent gain over the 8.1 percent who achieved the score in 2003 when the College Board began reporting the scores.

The College Board is a not for profit organization created to expand access to higher education.
