The 2012 Challenge Index shows 55.6% of Irvington students passing at least one AP exam by graduation.

The reason this figure matters is that Advanced Placement courses are, in theory, the equivalent of a college course.

So: 92% of Irvington students attend a 4-year college the year after graduation, but just 55.6% of Irvington students have passed at least one AP exam during high school.

What happens during the summer after graduation to make the other 36% ready to take a college-level course and succeed?

Not entirely sure what this means. Assuming “N Taking” means “number of students who took the AP exam,” we see a 67% pass rate on AP exams (500 exams taken, 336 passing scores).

UPDATE 11/23/2013: Assuming the slide above is the same as the slide in this year’s report, “N Taking” means the number of students taking the test — not the number of students taking an AP course.

We don’t know what proportion of the total student body has taken and passed at least one AP course by graduation. update 6/1/2012: The percentage of Irvington graduates who passed at least one college-level test [AP or IB] during their high school career is 55.6%

Another 112 exams weren’t taken at all. We don’t know how many of those students would have passed but skipped the exam due to senioritis or other factors.

And we don’t know the distribution of 3s, 4s, and 5s, which is especially  important in a high-performing district.
