How PA Homeschoolers Online Students Scored on the 2012 AP Exams
Howard Richman, 8/26/2012

Each year, the College Board reports how our PA Homeschoolers students score on the AP exams. The following graphs summarize our students' scores in 2012, as reported by the College Board, and how school students scored in 2011 on the same exams:


The AP exam scores mean the following:

  • 5 = "Extremely qualified" (equivalent to a college A+ or A)
  • 4 = "Very qualified" (equivalent to a college A-, B+ or B)
  • 3 = "Qualified" (equivalent to a college B-, C+ or C)
  • 2 = "Possibly qualified"
  • 1 = "No recommendation"

As shown in the above graphs:

  • 50% of our students, 14% of school students were "extremely qualified".
  • 76% of our students, 34% of school students were "very qualified" or better.
  • 93% of our students, 58% of school students were "qualified" or better.

There are two reasons why these scores may not be a completely accurate representation:

  1. These are the 452 exam results from those students who put down the PA Homeschoolers online provider code, as instructed, when they took the exam. The PA Homeschoolers Online students who did not put down our code may have scored differently.
  2. The distribution of school student scores for the 2012 test administration are not yet available and may have been different from the 2011 distribution graphed above.

All of PA Homeschoolers online casses from the 2011-2012 school year are represented by these scores: Art History, Biology, Calculus AB, Calculus BC, Chemistry, Comparative Government, Computer Science, English Language, English Literature, European History, Human Geography, Macroeconomics, Music, Physics B, Psychology, Spanish Language, Statistics, Studio Art Drawing, Studio Art 2D Design, US Government, US History and World History.
