Rise in AP CS test-takers and grades in 2013

The AP CS readers I know (and I’m married to one) say that we had about 32,000 test takers, a huge increase over the 24,782 from last year.  The website linked below (thanks to Gas station without pumps for the link) shows a significant increase in passing grades, too.  I’m sure that Barb will do a detailed analysis when the state-by-state and demographic data come out.

Scoring is complete for AP Computer Science. Bravo to these teachers & students: a large increase in 4s/5s over last year.

AP Comp Sci students’ multiple-choice results: on average, students performed best on the logic/software eng/recursion questions, on average, students performed least well on questions about data structures.

AP Comp Sci free-response: similar scores across all 4 questions, slightly higher scores on Q1, slightly lower on Q3: ow.ly/lVKJp

16% more students took AP Computer Science this year, which makes the expanded ratio of 4s and 5s all the more impressive. What teachers!
