The Advanced Placement Teacher Investment Program believes that all young people, especially those from underserved communities, deserve a high-quality education that prepares them for their own futures and empowers them to influence the communities in which they live. Through the implementation of this program and contributing to research, AP-TIP IN improves teaching and learning in AP classrooms.
The two main goals are:
- To increase the enrollment of students in math, science, and English Advanced Placement® courses in the schools participating in the project, and
- To increase the number of qualifying scores (3, 4, or 5) on AP® math, science, and English exams in the schools participating in the project
More than 760 students achieved a score of 3, 4, or 5 on nearly 1,990 AP MSE tests, thereby becoming eligible for college credit for those college courses. (Many students took more than one AP test). In their first year of participating in AP-TIP IN, the number of participating schools’ AP qualifying MSE scores (scores of 3, 4, or 5 that earn college credit) increased by 87 percent.
