2018-19 AP/IB REPORT

This report provides information to the public of Advanced Placement (AP) and International Baccalaureate (IB) course participation and assessment data reported to the New York State Education Department by school districts and charter schools. This data are an important part of the Board of Regents’ effort to create and transparently report on the educational equity for all students. The data are used as part of the calculation of an institution’s College, Career, and Civic Readiness. The data are aggregated by grade level and can be filtered by student subgroups.

Data is reported by education institutions to the State Education Department throughout the school year and are available for verification by districts via the Level 2 Reporting environment (L2RPT) until the close of the state data warehouse in August. Although the report does not need to be certified, the Department strongly encourages the data to be reviewed by the district for accuracy as the underlying data used to create this report are included in other L2RPTs that are required to be certified. For the most updated information, please contact the school district.
