I have recently been asked to provide input concerning my insitution's AP World History Exam policy. In short, how many credits should students receive and for what kind of score?
A score of three on the exam seems to be the standard, but I see no consensus as to whether or not the course should count for 3 or 6 credits. I have run across at least one instituion that offers vairible credit, dependant upon the exam score.
In these days of higher ed policies designed for both retention and making our insitution more attractive to a greater number of students, I am sure that my instituion would love to be able to say something along the lines of "We will give you 6 credits for your AP course, many others will only give you 3." But is scoring a 3 on the AP World History Exam worth two semesters of college credit?
Thanks in advance for your input,
